A fun day at the pool or lake can turn into an unimaginable tragedy when safety rules are not followed or safety equipment is missing or defective. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ten people die everyday in drowning accidents. Children are especially at risk as drowning is the second leading cause of death in children ages 1 to 14. Near-drowning accidents can produce catastrophic brain injuries due to lack of oxygen. For each child that drowns, another four will require emergency medical attention from near-drowning accidents.
