Causes of Drowning Accidents
Drowning accidents can happen for any number of reasons, but some are more common than others.
Below is a list of contributing factors that make it more likely:
- Ineffective or no fences around water: Fencing around pool areas can prevent access to a child. According to the CDC, a four-sided isolated fence separating a pool area from the yard and house can reduce the risk of a child drowning by 83%.
- No supervision: Drowning accidents can happen fast and without a sound, especially if there is a lack of supervision. Even if there is a lifeguard present, it is still crucial to supervise children when out at the pool or near any other body of water.
- Alcohol consumption: Alcohol impairs judgment, coordination, and balance. The CDC estimates that alcohol is responsible for one in five reported boating deaths.
- Location: More than half of both nonfatal and fatal drownings are among those 15 years of age or older and occur in natural waters, including oceans, lakes, and rivers.
