Drowning is the leading cause of injury death in children ages 1-4 and a top cause of death among teens.
Research suggests that fencing can prevent more than half of all swimming pool drownings of young children yet the biggest drowning threat facing families with toddlers is unexpected, unsupervised access to water.
Children are naturally attracted to water, whether it’s a swimming pool or bathtub. Toddlers are at particular risk. The most dangerous room in your home is the bathroom. Prevent water tragedies by safety-proofing your home. The risk is just too high.
