Where children and adolescents drown in Queensland: a population-based study.

Wallis BA, Watt K, Franklin RC, Nixon JW, Kimble RM - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Toddlers 0-4 years were most at risk around pools (23.94/100,000), and static water bodies such as dams and buckets-the fatality ratios were highest at these 2 locations for this age group.Most mortality and morbidity could have been prevented by improving water safety through engaged supervision around pools and bath time, and a heightened awareness of buckets and man-made water hazards around the farm home for young children.These data provide a different approach to inform prevention strategies.
