Drowning continues to be one of the leading causes of accidental death in children – in fact people in the UK and Ireland are more likely to die from drowning than they are from being hit by a car or in a domestic fire. On average 402 people accidentally drown every year in the UK and many more also suffer life-changing injuries, through non-fatal accidents.
