Event Description:

Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death for children ages one to four.

Most drownings result from inadequate supervision when a caregiver becomes distracted by a phone, doorbell or other children.

Young children drown quickly and silently in as little as one inch of water.

For every child who drowns, five more need emergency medical care for injuries that can result in life changing brain damage.
