(WSAZ) You know to watch your children while they're swimming, but what you may not know is that there is still a risk for drowning even after they've left the pool.
"I think we tend to think, once our kids are out of the water, they're safe," said Dr. Ben Allan from St. Mary's Women and Family Care in Barboursville, West Virginia. "That's usually the case, but we want to be watching our kids, even during the hours after they come out of the water."
Dr. Allan tells WSAZ this is known as "secondary drowning."
