The leading cause of death in Florida from ages 1-4 is drowning. Florida has the highest drowning death rate in the nation. That is a tremendous rate! To help you grasp the idea of how high this rate is, that is enough children each year to fill 3 to 4 preschool classes. Though the drowning rate that takes place in a swimming pool is high, that is not the only area that these tragedies happen.
56% of drowning victims under the age of 5 drowned in a swimming pool (38), 6% in a bathtub (4), and 15% in natural/open water (10).
