Drowning accidents are extremely dangerous events that can ultimately cause serious brain damage, if not death to the accident victim due to lack of oxygen. Aquatic accidents can happen anywhere, at any time – they can occur at the beach, out in the ocean, in a backyard pool, off of a cruise ship or even in a couple of inches of water in a bathtub. As long as there is water present, the risk of drowning is always a real and ever present threat to unsuspecting victims, especially small children.
