Possible diving injuries include:
One situation where diving could lead to a spinal cord injury is if a public pool is not adequately filled. If a pool has a deep end, than it is assumed that the end of the pool is safe for diving. However, in some cases, the pool manager, hotel staff, or others in charge of overseeing the pool do not fill it to where it needs to be or they do not carefully inspect the deep end to make sure the water level is maintained at the appropriate depth. If the water level is a low, an unsuspecting diver may slam into the bottom of the pool and suffer a spinal cord injury.
Another situation where diving can lead to spinal cord injuries is diving into a backyard lake or pond. If the water is not clear like a pool, those going swimming have no way of estimating how deep the water is. A swimmer may dive in thinking it was plenty deep enough only to discover the water is really not deep or there are large rocks just under the water’s surface. The owners of the property should have signs put up to instruct people not to dive in the area.
