Did you know that nearly 90 children drown inside the home each year, and two-thirds of these deaths occur in the bathtub? A child can drown in as little as two inches of water and it happens quickly and silently. Every one of these tragedies is preventable.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is warning consumers about hidden drowning hazards for small children in and around the home.
In addition to bathtubs, five-gallon buckets, toilets, coolers, sinks and fish tanks also pose in-home drowning hazards. In response to this, the CPSC has produced a :30 PSA to address the tragedy that is in-home drowning.
