Summer is finally here and it is time to plant yourself next to the pool and soak up the sun, but be careful there are tons of dangers that await when everyone is out of school and relaxing by the pool.

The top 7 injuries that doctors see the most during summer, according to Huffington Post, is as follows:

  • Heat related illness
  • Swimming injuries or drowning
  • Burns and Cuts
  • Food Poisoning
  • Sports related injuries
  • Insect bites
  • Sun burns

Each injury can be avoided with precaution. If you are going out in the sun make sure to have sunscreen and plenty of water. And always keep an eye out when swimming. I use floaties.
