A: It is possible, but other facts are needed to fully explore whether somebody failed to follow proper safety rules resulting in this person's drowning. You should see an attorney knowledgeable in pool safety regulations to discuss your matter in greater detail.

A: I'm sorry for this terrible loss. It's possible, but from the facts at hand, it isn't clear if there was a defect involving the pool. Based on the brief description here, it sounds like a lifeguard being on duty, or being vigilant and alert, was the primary cause. You could consult with a Georgia attorney who could examine the matter in further detail. Good luck
