Abstract/Summary Retrospective data on approximately 800 non fatal drowning events among children 0-19 years were collated from multiple sources (prehospital, emergency department, admitted patients). These data were supplemented by injury surveillance data. Preliminary analyses indicate that nonfatal drowning episodes occur in pools and spas in more than half (58%) of hospital admissions, followed by natural water bodies (12%) and bathtubs (10%).
