ANNAPOLIS, Md. -
There may be a new law in place when you take your kids to the pool this summer.
It’s called Connor’s Law, and it is aimed at keeping your kids safe while they are swimming.
Connor Freed drowned under an empty lifeguard chair at a Crofton Pool.
The measure requires all public pools in the state to have an automated external defibrillator on site.
The device can help re-establish irregular heart rhythms.
Lifeguards must also be trained to use it.
The House of Delegates passed the bill and now it is moving on to the Senate.
The law first passed in Anne Arundel County and three other counties have followed.
