If you're wondering who Virginia Graeme Baker is, she was a 7 year old girl who became stuck to a hot tub drain and was unable to pull herself free in June of 2002. Efforts by her mother to pull Graeme from the drain proved unsuccessful. Two men who eventually freed Graeme from the spa pulled so hard that the drain cover broke from the force. Graeme died from drowning, but the real cause of her death was suction entrapment due to a faulty drain cover.

The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act was enacted to prevent the tragic and hidden hazard of drain entrapments and eviscerations in pools and spas. The law became effective on Dec.19, 2008. Under the law, all public pools and spas must have ASME/ANSI A112.19.8 compliant drain covers installed and a second anti-entrapment system installed, when there is a single main drain (other than an unblockable drain) or multiple drains that are less than 3 feet apart.
