Did you know…

Drowning is the number one cause of unintentional injury death in the United States for children aged 1-4.

For children aged 1-4 drowning claims the lives of more young children each year than unintentional motor vehicle, poisoning, fire arms and falls combined.

For every child 1-4 years old who dies from drowning, another eight receive emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries, many of which result in life-long disabilities due to brain damage from lack of oxygen.

Drowning is the 3rd leading cause of unintentional injury death worldwide.
