Drowning Statistics

Drowning Statistics


Drowning is a leading cause of accidental death worldwide, particularly among children and young adults. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 320,000 people die each year from drowning. Drowning is more common in low- and middle-income countries, where access to swimming lessons and water safety education is limited. In some countries, drowning is the leading cause of death among children under the age of 5. Males are at a higher risk of drowning than females. Drowning is preventable, and measures such as swimming lessons, lifeguards, and barriers to prevent unsupervised access to water can help reduce the risk of drowning.
