Swimming can not only be fun, but, it's a skill kids need to learn at a very early age.
Every day, about ten people die from unintentional drowning. Of these, two are children aged 14 or younger.
Drowning is the sixth leading cause of unintentional injury death for people of all ages, and the second leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 14 years.
More than 55% of drowning victims treated in emergency departments require hospitalization or transfer for higher levels of care (compared to a hospitalization rate of 3-5% for all unintentional injuries)
Nonfatal drowning can cause brain damage that may result in long-term disabilities including memory problems, learning disabilities, and permanent loss of basic functioning.
Aqua Tots is located at 846 E. Big Beaver in Troy.
