Drowning is the Number -One Killer of Children ages four and Under in Florida.
It takes only a few seconds and an inch of water for a child to drown.
More than half of the drownings among infants occur in bathtubs.
For every child who drowns, four others are hospitalized for near drowning and as many as three suffer from brain damage.
The majority of children who drown in pools were last seen in the home, had been missing from sight for less than 5 minutes, and were in the care of one or both parents at the time of drowning.
