Why is this important?

Drowning is the leading cause of death for infants and young children in 18 states. Nationally, drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death for persons aged 5 to 44 years. In 2005, there were 3,852 fatal unintentional drownings in the United States. The number of people receiving emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries is four times the number of fatalities. Nonfatal drowning can cause serious brain damage resulting in memory loss, learning disabilities, and permanent loss of basic functioning.
The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the fatal drowning death rate to 1.1 deaths per 100,000 population.
