Every year, nearly 90 children drown inside the home, and two-thirds of these deaths occur in the bathtub. A child can drown in as little as 2 inches of water, and it happens quickly and silently. Every one of these tragedies is preventable.
This PSA demonstrates the importance of constant supervision. Parents and guardians should never leave a child alone in the bathtub or near any container of water. Turning their backs for a moment can change their lives forever.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s call to action to is to ensure parents and caregivers recognize potential dangers in the home and take simple steps to prevent tragedies. Through this educational campaign, CPSC is working to save children’s lives and prevent in-home drowning.
