Children Most Likely To Suffer A Swimming Pool Injury
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), between 2005 and 2014 there were approximately 10 unintentional drownings in the U.S. every day. Swimming pool accidents are not always fatal. Unfortunately, our youngest family members are at the greatest risk of suffering a swimming pool injury or death. Studies show that the leading cause of death for children between the age of one and four is unintentional drowning. When all drownings are considered, these statistics are striking:
- Three-quarters of all drowning deaths involve children under the age of 5.
- Two-thirds of all drowning deaths involve children under the age of 3.
Children do not always suffer a fatal injury when involved in a swimming pool accident. According to the CDC, for every child killed in a swimming pool accident, the other four suffer serious injuries.
