Drowning occurs primarily at:

A. A pool that the child is unfamiliar with

B. A pool at the child’s own house

C. Pools at apartments, where many people use the same pool

D. Pools at abandoned houses, where fences are in disrepair

Whoops! Wrong answer.

Answer: B

Most drownings occur at the home of the child. This fact is based on statistical research in maricopa County. Also, boys do drown more often than girls, but this is no reason to not be as careful with girls! Any pool can be the site of a drowning, and all children are at risk, even those who "know how to swim".
