The 4th of July Holiday Weekend is upon us, and it’s a time for Americans to unwind and relax with family and friends. Millions of people will travel, and we hope that is all done safely.
Millions more will go swimming, as this is always something that people of all ages enjoy when immersed in summer weather.
Unfortunately, that also means that people who swim will encounter danger. As we close out National Safety Month, we’d like to provide some statistics regarding drowning deaths in the United States. This is clearly a difficult topic to cover, but hopefully those with knowledge of these statistics will take precautionary steps to avoid tragedy. Please enjoy your holiday weekend safely.
The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or the CDC, records and tracks several different types of statistics relating to danger and harm faced by Americans. One of those bodies of data involves drowning deaths. For many people, these numbers will be nothing short of shocking. According to the CDC, the following statistics relate to drowning deaths across the country:
A full breakdown of these statistics can be found here. These are terrifying figures to be sure, but hopefully more awareness can help people bring these numbers down collectively.
Below are some ideas from different sources for people to keep in mind so that neither they nor someone they love becomes a tragic part of these statistics:
The Gomez Trial Attorneys have heard too many tragic stories over the years of people who lost their lives unnecessarily. We hope that no one suffers this type of loss over the holiday weekend.
If you have lost someone you love to one of the many drowning deaths or for some other reason, contact the wrongful death lawyers in San Diego at the Gomez Trial Attorneys to schedule a free initial consultation. We hope you have a happy and safe 4th of July.
