In Home Drowning Takes 87 Lives!

Blog in Spanish

Wherever you have water in and around your home, supervising small children is critical. (Remember our Baby’s Bath: What You Need to Know blog from last year?)  About once every four days, a child under the age of 5 drowns in a bathtub, bucket, toilet or landscape pond. Eighty percent of these incidents happen in a bathtub.  Wow! How many parents know that?

Take some time during Baby Safety Month to watch this video to see how you can help save 87 children. Use this YouTube link to share or embed the video on your site.
