Child sucked into curb inlet

Gaithersburg, MD – When handing out our Child Safety and Patented Curb Inlet Stormwater Protection Guards brochure, the young mother of three started to cry.  Seems several years before, she and her then two children, one 5 and the other 3, were walking down the street.  She was holding the three year old’s hand when the child was knocked off her feet by the rushing water from a neighbor’s swimming pool flush.  The child’s body was pulled into the curb inlet, and was stopped from going all the way in by her head getting stuck in the opening.  It was quite a few scary minutes trying to pull her very frightened child from the curb inlet.
