Abstract The article presents a study on drowning as the major cause of mortality and morbidity of the children in Brisbane, Queensland. It states that the drowning death rates of young children, aging 0-4 years old, had decreased after the introduction of safety legislation. The study has shown that the drowning incidents of young children will continue to reduce with the introduction of safety legislation and enforced compliance, in combination with education for safety and ongoing advocacy.
