Every year there will be more than 3,400 people in the United States that will die from drowning with one out of every five of the drowning victims being under 14 years of age. Some additional statistics on children and drowning include:
- For every child that losses their life to drowning another four children will require emergency medical treatment for near drowning.
- For children that experience near drowning accidents, many children will experience severe levels of brain damage that will forever alter their life due to the severity of the oxygen deprivation.
- Statistically, children of African American descent have a much higher drowning death rate than those of Caucasian descent.
- Both a lack of barriers and a lack of supervision are two of the key drowning causes among children.
