The Spa at South Coast Plaza plans to open Aug. 1 in a building previously occupied by the short-lived and ill-fated Spa at the Center on Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa. The new club incorporates the upscale building that housed the defunct spa, including its marble statues, luxurious carpeting and the tony address near Orange County's leading shopping center. But Spa at South Coast executives say that's about all the two clubs will share.

A baby about to celebrate his first birthday party was fighting for his life Saturday night after he wandered away from his family and plunged into a pool, police and fire officials said. The baby, Evan Vuong, had no pulse and was not breathing when Garden Grove police officers and paramedics arrived at the family's Jefferson Avenue home at 3:35 p.m., said Garden Grove Fire Department paramedic Rick Hibbard.

Once again, we read of, and react to, the death of a child in a backyard Orange County swimming pool. We react in the hope that calling attention to such tragic and needless deaths will make an ever-widening impression on people of the inherent danger of a child being anywhere near a swimming pool without supervision. Awareness may save another youngster's life in situations in which far too many lives are being lost.

A 2-year-old boy drowned Monday after he wandered from his mother and apparently fell into a neighbor's pool. He was the seventh child to die in a swimming pool or spa so far this year in Orange County. Juan Carlos Quintana was gone for 5 or 10 minutes before his mother realized it, police said. He was found face down in the neighbor's pool. Police and paramedics tried unsuccessfully to revive the boy, who was taken to Garden Grove Hospital and Medical Center in Garden Grove.

Drownings have been on the decline in Los Angeles County for the last five years, according to officials. The total number of all drownings in the county dipped from 143 in 1992 to 95 last year. Meanwhile, the number of pool drownings of children under the age of 4 dropped from 26 in 1993 to 11 last year. Historically, backyard pool drownings have claimed the lives of more California toddlers and preschoolers than any other type of accident.

Orange County, with its warm weather and affluent neighborhoods, can be deadly for little children. "Each year there are 10 to 12 children who die in Orange County in drowning accidents," according to Dr. Ralph Rucker, director of the pulmonary division of Childrens Hospital of Orange County. "Orange County has the highest or close to the highest rate (of deaths) in the country." Rucker termed it the "lethal luxury of back-yard pools. People don't think of that when they put in pools."
