Each year over 2,500 youths are admitted into hospital emergency rooms for drowning incidents and accidents. Almost half of these incidents result in need for hospitalization and over 300 cases result in death. The majority of these drowning incidents occur in residential pools. Because drowning can occur in just seconds and without noise or sign of a struggle, active adult supervision is critical.
