Since July 5, 2016, two 2-year-olds and one 6-year-old have died from drowning. Adults losing track of the children for several minutes appears to be a major factor in these drownings. Drowning is the leading cause of death by unintentional injury in children between the ages of 1 and 5.
Parents and caregivers need to provide direct supervision to all young children and non-swimmers, even when lifeguards are provided.
