Abigail Taylor, the six-year-old girl who underwent a rare transplant surgery after her intestines were sucked out in a swimming pool, died in an Omaha hospital last month. Abigail’s parents were with her when she died at Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. We wrote about Abigail in the December issue. She underwent transplant surgery in December at the Nebraska hospital to receive a new small bowel, liver and pancreas.
In December, President George W. Bush signed The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act of 2007, according to SafeKids.net. The legislation provides incentives for states to adopt comprehensive pool safety laws that will protect children from life-threatening injuries and deaths from potentially dangerous pool and spa drains. This legislation was badly needed and long overdue. There were lots of victims like Abigail who died tragic deaths as the result of an industry that refused to correct known defects in the products it manufactured and sold.
