The statistics speak for themselves.
Drowning is the second-most common cause of accidental death among children 14 and younger, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
About 750 children drown each year, 375 of whom do so within 25 yards of a parent or adult.
More startling, the CDC said 10 percent of parents watch their children drown because they don’t know it’s happening.
Prevention is key to reducing these statistics. This is why we ask for support each year.
