Mom Blown Away By Wheelchair-Friendly Pool For Her Daughter

Most kids love playing in swimming pools. Unfortunately, pools aren’t always designed to be wheelchair friendly or accessible.

Sadly, sometimes kids in wheelchairs miss out on the fun that other kids get to experience. However, there was one mom, Katrina Placzek, who shared a special moment for her daughter, Dallas.

They had managed to find a special, pool-friendly wheelchair at Tiff’s Place, which is a wheelchair-accessible vacation home in Chuluota, Florida.

Placzek stated, “We couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw this private wheelchair accessible pool! Never have we seen a wheelchair meant for pools or a ramp entry meant for wheelchairs to access the pool!”

Her video went on to garner more than 1.5 million likes. She has further shared other videos on her Instagram account, @discover_with_dallas, wanting to increase an awareness of issues facing people living with disabilities.

She said to ABC News, “The most important thing is just for people to think about disabled children and think about disabled adults when they’re making a business, or they’re designing a playground, or if the school is building a new, updated playground.”
