To say our pool fencing laws are extreme is to understate the situation. This fence is not to prevent children falling into the ocean, it is acutally to stop them climbing from the beach into the (free) pool area, where they would surely drown if they did not enter via the gate.
The ocean is not considered dangerous, nor are rivers, nor ponds, but swimming pools are public enemy number ...... something!
