Careful People Share Which Unlikely Things In Daily Life Could Kill You

Pool drains. I have the worst fear of pool drains, especially the large square drains, because in 2000, I got stuck to a massive square drain the size of a door at the bottom of a community pool when it accidentally turned on. Luckily, the lifeguard immediately jumped into action and had the drain turned off. They had to cut out my hair and I had the worst Posh Spice bob for the rest of 5th grade. In most recent years, due to several pool drain-related deaths, I've read that pool drain covers have to be "dome-like" and there are two drain systems, so if someone gets stuck on one drain, the suction goes to the other drain. I have a slight obsession with looking up pool drain safety these days.

Smoldering ashes. Ashes can smolder for hours, and you won't even notice. I have a two stage system for outside ashtrays, and a safe spot for the grill to cool down overnight. Never take chances with any form of fire.

Carbon monoxide - get a detector. Not sure how big of a deal it is anymore but it was like THE killer thing in the 90s
