Arizona’s hot summers and temperate winters make it enjoyable to spend time in and around the water. Unfortunately, every year there are many drowning and near-drowning accidents in Arizona’s pools, canals, and lakes.
More About Drowning And Near-Drowning Accidents
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), roughly ten people drown in non-boating accidents every day across the country. The CDC’s data also indicates that:
- 1 in 5 drownings are children under the age of 14.
- Drowning is the 6th leading cause of death for children ages 1-14.
- 80% of all drowning victims are male.
Even near-drowning accidents can have dire consequences. Survivors of a near-drowning accident may have gone many minutes without oxygen. When the brain is deprived of oxygen for an extended amount of time it is permanently damaged. Thus, survivors of a near-drowning accident may suffer a brain injury and face a lifetime of medical needs.
