Arizona has a long history of child water related incidents and remains second, only to Florida, in the highest number of pediatric drownings in our country. In 2011, there were 32 child deaths due to drowning, which accounted for four percent of all child deaths in Arizona. The largest percentage of drowning deaths has been among children ages one through four years and there was an increase seen in children ages 5 through 9 years old. Ninety-four percent of child drowning fatalities were identified as preventable.
