Restricting a child’s access to water can be done by placing a barrier between the child and the water. This can be done by either placing a barrier around the water OR by placing a barrier around the child.
Restricting access when combined with the other Keep Watch actions of Supervise, Water Awareness and Resuscitate are highly effective in preventing child drowning.
