Fifty six kids have drowned in Texas so far in 2019. We can prevent these tragedies if we all Watch Kids around Water!

Water is a great way to beat the heat but summer is also when children are most likely to drown. Drowning is a leading cause of accidental death for kids under the age of five and toddlers are especially at risk. Drowning can happen in almost any amount of water, indoors or outdoors.

But, we can prevent these tragedies if we all Watch Kids around Water! Never leave a child unsupervised around water, inside or outside of the house. It only takes a few minutes for a child to drown.
