Did You Know?
  • Swimming pools are the most common site for a drowning to occur for children ages 1 to 4.
  • Eighty-nine percent of boating deaths of all ages occurred on boats where the operator had not received boating safety instructions.
  •  The majority of infant drowning deaths happen in bathtubs or large buckets.
  • The use of specially made drain covers, safety vacuum-release systems, multiple filter pumps and other pressure-venting pool filter mechanisms can reduce the risk of entrapment in pools.
