    Overview
    Every day, about ten people die from unintentional drowning. Of these, two are children aged 14 or younger. Drowning ranks fifth among the leading causes of unintentional injury death in the United States.1


    How big is the problem?
    From 2005-2009, there were an average of 3,533 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States — about ten deaths per day. An additional 347 people died each year from drowning in boating-related incidents.2
    About one in five people who die from drowning are children 14 and younger.2 For every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries.1
    More than 50% of drowning victims treated in emergency departments (EDs) require hospitalization or transfer for further care (compared with a hospitalization rate of about 6% for all unintentional injuries).1,2 These nonfatal drowning injuries can cause severe brain damage that may result in long-term disabilities such as memory problems, learning disabilities, and permanent loss of basic functioning (e.g., permanent vegetative state).3,4
    Who is most at risk?
    Males: Nearly 80% of people who die from drowning are male.2
    Children: Children ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates. In 2009, among children 1 to 4 years old who died from an unintentional injury, more than 30% died from drowning.1,2 Among children ages 1 to 4, most drownings occur in home swimming pools.2 Drowning is responsible for more deaths among children 1-4 than any other cause except congenital anomalies (birth defects).1 Among those 1-14, fatal drowning remains the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death behind motor vehicle crashes.1
    Minorities: Between 2005 and 2009, the fatal unintentional drowning rate for African Americans was significantly higher than that of whites across all ages.2 The disparity is widest among children 5-14 years old. The fatal drowning rate of African American children ages 5 to 14 is almost three times that of white children in the same age range.2


    Factors such as access to swimming pools, the desire or lack of desire to learn how to swim, and choosing water-related recreational activities may contribute to the racial differences in drowning rates. Available rates are based on population, not on participation. If rates could be determined by actual participation in water-related activities, the disparity in minorities’ drowning rates compared to whites would be much greater

    Guess Mexicans drowning is workboots is the equivalent of TMartin. They get all the media coverage around here, yet it's the little minorities that are the real problem in pools.

    It's only a matter of time until the Black Panthers figure this out and put out a bounty on Pool City.

    For anyone out there crying 'Justice for Trayvon'.....seems to me that the justice system is in fact very consistent. Here you have a black guy shoot a 16 year old white kid in a near identical situation, but the black guy never got physically touched, never called the cops at all, and shot the kid twice. He was on trial for manslaughter, and like Zimmerman got off. Only difference is you didn't see people running around saying how unfair the system is. Always gotta be the victim.

    I actually emailed that link to CNN and Foxnews asking them to do comparison pieces on the two incidents. CNN gave me an autorespond message saying they received it but nothing more. Foxnews didn't respond.

    The problem isn't race. It's idiots and guns. The majority of people that want guns to protect themselves are probably the least likely people to be responsible gun owners.

    The justice system seems a little messed up in both situations. The guy with the gun started both confrontations. Seems like both kids felt threatened and responded. Then the guy with the gun in both cases got scared and killed the kid. I think they should add some legalese that self defense only applies to the person that didn't start the confrontation. I think both of these killers should have lost their right to protect themselves the moment they were the aggressor and instigated the situation. But that's not the way the law works.

    The laws should punish those that start stuff and encourage people not to act like knuckleheads.

    For Mister Pittsburgh who believes the justice system is equitable and probably believes white people receive discriminatory treatment and blacks receive preferential treatment. Countless studies have proven blacks are more like to receive harsher sentences for similar crimes as whites and much more like to receive the death penalty for killing a white person as opposed to when a white person kills a black person. Right-wing people always like to cherry-pick one or two examples, but broad expanse of experience shows otherwise. http://www.alternet.org/story/62838/...t_end_of_stick

    The important part to read in that article is the 'unintentional' part.

    How many 'intentional' drownings are there compared to 'intentional' shootings? How many 'intentional' motor vehicle deaths?

    There will always be unintential fatalities. The key is to remove the factors that help create intentional ones..
