In Home Danger: CPSC Warns of Children Drowning in Bathtubs, Bath Seats and Buckets

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The danger of drowning for young children is ever present in and around the home. Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death among children ages 1 to 4 years-old and it takes only a few inches of water for a young child to drown. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is urging parents and caregivers to look for and protect against drowning risks inside and around their homes.
