P-06-1212 Mark Allen's Law - we want throwline stations around all open water sites in Wales
This petition was submitted by Leeanne Elizabeth Bartley, having collected a total of 11,027 signatures.
Text of Petition:
Mark Allen, aged 18, drowned after jumping into a freezing reservoir on a hot day in June 2018. In May 2019 we watched whilst 3 throwlines were installed where he died. Mark could have possibly been saved if they were in place beforehand.
We, Mark's family and friends, feel that it should be law that throwlines like those placed where Mark died should be placed in designated places around every reservoir, lake, canal etc. Speaking to people who work in water safety, e.g. fire services etc., such throwlines have saved many lives. We want to save lives and save people from going through the heartbreak and tragedy of losing someone they love to drowning.
Plz help us make a positive difference in Marks memory.
Thank you, Mark's family and friends.
