Why are swim lessons so important?
Near-fatal and fatal drowning is a very real danger; especially for children. At The Y, we are dedicated to the safety of our neighbors and their loved ones. Did you know:
- For children under the age of 14, drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death in the U.S.
- Out of these deaths, 90% happen while a parent or caregiver is present. 75% of them are only out of site for less than five minutes.
- For every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries.
- Nonfatal drowning injuries can cause severe brain damage that may result in long-term disabilities.
