Summer would not be the same without a trip to the local swimming pool. On hot days, nothing cools children and adults better than a dip in the pool. However, many people are not always mindful of the dangers that a pool can pose. An average of 10 people a day die as the result of unintentional drowning. Of these, two are children under the age of 14. In fact, drowning is the fifth leading cause of unintentional injury deaths. More young children, age 1 to 4, die each year from unintentional drowning than any other cause of death, with the exception of birth defects.
