Drowning is the leading cause of death among children 1-4 years old. Here are a few tips to share with families around water safety:
- Before starting the bath, adults should make sure they have everything they need, so they never leave a baby alone in a bathtub.
- Anytime a child is around water, an adult should be within an arm’s reach.
- Starting swim lessons can greatly reduce a child’s risk of drowning.
- Make sure to use a US Coast Guard-approved life jacket for children.
