Drowning is the leading cause of death for children ages one to four, and more than two-thirds of those fatalities occur during the summer. While drowning is fast, quiet and may occur with a small amount of water in a bucket or bathroom, it is entirely preventable. Becoming aware of common misconceptions about water safety and learning ways to prevent drowning is important to keeping babies and children safe.
The CDC recently posted this great resource for tips for safety around water.
