How to Be Safer in and Around the Water
Drowning ranks fifth among the leading causes of unintentional injury death in the United States and the second leading cause of death for children 1 to 14 years old.
Children from non-swimming households are eight times more likely to be at risk of drowning. Among children ages 1 to 4, most drownings occur in residential swimming pools. Most young children who drown in pools were last seen in the home, had been out of sight less than five minutes, and were in the care of one or both parents at the time.

“Participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by as much as 88 percent among young children aged 1 to 4 years.”-Center for Disease Control
Remove all toys from within the pool gate or around the pool. A child’s favorite toy is a dangerous lure to the pool side.
