. . .about statistics

is that

you can drown easily in a river

that’s an average of three feet deep.

Don’t Drink and Dive

Ten people drown on an average day.  Alcohol combined with water recreation is a factor in about one third of the adult drownings. That’s why it’s important to understand the dangers alcohol consumption can pose, especially near the water.

When people drink alcohol, their judgment and inhibitions are impaired. That is a dangerous situation, especially near water.

Medical experts suggest teaching children early about the dangers of water and alcohol by setting an example by never drinking alcohol before or while swimming or boating, and never drinking while supervising children near the water.
