Water - Danger at Any DepthTragedies happen in a blink of an eye, in water of any depth - a small child can drown in as little as an inch of water. Drowning is the second leading cause of death among Utah children under the age of 14.

Water accidents are also a major cause of life-altering brain injuries every year. There's simply no substitute for 100% supervision. Watch your children at all times whenever they're around water, and remember, don't just be there, be aware.
