Consider accidental risk from water around your home. Pool barriers and toilet latches can help prevent drowning around your home.

Drowning isn't splashy and loud as you would see on television. People slip underwater and their mouths fill with water so they can't scream. There has to be someone on duty at all times to watch for distress in the water.

Listen as Dr. Sarah Denny joins Melanie Cole, MS, to share how to prevent drowning
