According to news reports, a three-year-old in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, recently fell from his home’s third-floor balcony onto an unusual Safety Net — the family’s hot tub cover.
Apparently unhurt, he nonchalantly walked back into the house and told his grandfather what happened, who quickly called paramedics. In an abundance of caution, he was taken in an ambulance for tests, where it was learned that the hot tub cover not only saved his life but completely protected him from injury.
This is a time when you wish DC Comics would recreate their superhero “Aquaman” riding the rolling seas in the security of hot tub cover! You got to admit, catching and supporting this little guy is an heroic feet.

Hot Tub Covers Do Heroic Work
Of course, we’re not suggesting you buy a hot tub cover for your spa in order to catch falling kids, or even animals when its raining cats and dogs, but this incident reminds us to champion these hard-working spa amenities for the regular security and other assistance they provide.
For example: a quality hot tub cover will, indeed, hold the weight of a child or family pet and keep them from getting into the hot tub unattended. And they do much more. In fact, a quality cover is so important, Long Island Hot Tub includes one in the price of all our hot tub packages.
