The CDC reports that more than 3,000 people died as a result of a drowning accident in 2007. For every person who died as a result of accidental drowning, thousands more were injured as a result of a submersion accident.
Tragically, many drowning victims are young children. One out of every five fatal drowning victims is a child age 14 or younger according to the CDC report. Two of the main causes of drowning and submersion accidents are boating accidents and swimming pool accidents.
