Drowning danger report
Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death among young children in the home.
That's according to a new report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The report says from 2006 to 2010, there were 684 incidents involving products such as bathtubs, bath seats, toilets, and even landscaping features. More than 400 of those incidents resulted in death.
The agency is reminding parents and caregivers to watch out for drowning risks around the home, and that it takes only a few inches of water for children ages 1 to 4 years-old to drown.
