As the temperatures rise, a lot of people around the Garden State are flocking to anywhere they can to stay cool, including swimming pools.

While most of the time an afternoon at the pool is nothing but good 'ole fun, sometimes it can be dangerous. As a parent, please pay attention to this warning.

Beach ball in swimming pool

There is a certain color swimsuit you should never buy your child, ABC TV reports. Can you guess which color it is?

Never buy your child a blue bathing suit

It's blue.

Oh no. That's a popular color for swimsuits. I feel like it's the first color I see in the stores when looking for a swimsuit.


Let's think about this for a minute. If your child is struggling to stay afloat in the pool and goes under, they will blend in with the pool and the water. Most pools are blue on the inside, right?

Nikki Scarnati, a mom of two and a children's swim instructor, was on Good Morning America, warning of the dangers of children in blue bathing suits.

Scarnati also made this Tik Tok Video:

In the video, she says, "Look how difficult it is to see her under the water, and this is in calm water. This is not with a whole bunch of other kids playing, splashing around, and having a good time. Even look in the sunlight, look how difficult it is to see her with that bathing suit on 'cause it's the same color as our environment. So, do not buy a blue bathing suit guys."

That's so scary. It can happen so quickly too.

What color swimsuit should you buy your child?

Buy your child a brightly colored swimsuit

A brightly colored swimsuit is the best choice....neon colors, bright pink, orange, green...anything bright, so your child can be easily spotted by you or a lifeguard under the water.


Keep your children safe this summer. Stay away from blue bathing suits.

Here's Jason Kelce's $2.2 Million Beach House in Sea Isle City, New Jersey

Ever since Jason Kelce made his emotional retirement announcement, the former Eagles Center has embraced the post-football life. Having grown up in Ohio and playing College Football at the University of Cincinnati, some would think Jason Kelce would spend his post-career years back at home, but he has chosen to live in New Jersey.

Thanks to his wife Kylie growing up in the Suburban Philadelphia area and playing his entire NFL career for the Eagles, Jason Kelce has now planted his life here in Eagles Country. After vacationing in Sea Isle City for years, the Kelces have purchased a Beach House in South Jersey. Makes sense considering Sea Isle City is one of the 50 Best Places to Retire in New Jersey and one of the best towns to live in Cape May County.
Reportedly sold for $2.2 Million right off the boardwalk, check out Jason Kelce's Sea Isle City Beach House
