The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that every day, about 10 people die from unintentional drowning. Of those, 2 are children aged 14 or younger. Drowning is the 6th leading cause of unintentional injury death for all ages and the 2nd leading cause of death for children 1 to 14 years old and for every child that dies from drowning, another 4 receive emergency care for nonfatal submersion injuries, most often brain injury which can result in long term disability and require lifelong medical care. Among children under the age of 4, most drownings occur in swimming pools and most had last been seen in the home and had been out of sight for less than 5 minutes.
