The claim was brought in accordance with English law, as the accident happened over here. The decision in Grimes v Hawkins follows the decision in Evans v Kosmar

To dive into a shallow swimming pool carries an "obvious risk".  The pool was properly designed, competently built and well maintained. There was nothing unusual about it and there were no hidden hazards. The risk that arose was not from the state of the premises; rather it was caused by the risk inherent in diving.
