United, we can prevent the tragedy of drowning
Help us save lives on #GivingTuesday
In the U.S. drowning takes an average of 3,500-4,000 lives per year. That is an average of 10 fatal drownings per day.
Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional injury related death for children ages 1-4. Drowning remains in the top 5 causes of unintentional injury related death from birth to 54 years old.
In addition to fatal drownings, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that in 2016 an additional 9,000+ victims were seen at U.S. Emergency Departments for a non-fatal submersion injury.
It is our goal to bring these numbers down through water safety education programs and drowning prevention initiatives. Education is an effective way to decrease drowning.
