Over 1K children die each year in pool accidents in Florida alone, making drowning the leading cause of death among young children in the state. Drowning is also a significant cause of fatality for the elderly. Each year, there are approximately ten deaths per day in the United States from fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related), an average of over 3K fatalities per year. For children ages 1-4 (particularly African American and Hispanic children), fatal drowning is the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death after birth defects. Drowning causes more deaths in children ages 1-14 than anything else except motor vehicle crashes.
