Here are some ways for children to prevent water tubing injuries:
- Wear a personal floatation device (PFD). If a water tubing accident happens, a life vest may prevent drowning.
- Have a spotter, whose only job is to keep an eye on those who are tubing. The spotter should tell the driver of any issues, such as falling off the tube or rider requests to slow down.
- Check the tow rope before starting. The tow rope should be free of slack and should not be tangled with any objects. The tube can flip leading to accidents
