Safety and loud music in pool
At the pool where I swim regularly, the lifeguards play heavy beat music that's so loud I can hear it with earplugs in and my head under water. Is this not a safety issue? They wouldn't be able to hear someone gasping. They haven't responded to my complaints on the basis of obnoxiousness, so now I want to see if I can get their attention on the basis of safety/liability. I've done some Google search and found two americanlifeguard.com pages that support me on this, but would like to have some more back-up to include in my next letter.
Am I nuts, or is this a problem? And if yes, any references that back me up would be appreciated. Thanks!! Happy swimming!!
