CPSC Data Shows Most Drowning Occurs in Backyard Pools
Date:7/13/2013

of the injured being younger than 5.

New data from CPSC’s 2013 Submersion Report compiles information on reported pool or spa-related drowning between 2008 and 2010 and estimated pool or spa-related injuries from 2010 through 2012 for children younger than 15. The estimated averages for the three-year periods represented show:

  • Residential locations dominated incidents involving victims younger than 5 years of age; 85 percent of the fatalities occurred at residential pools or spas. About 50 percent of the injuries
and 73 percent of the fatalities involving children younger than 15 years occurred at a residence.

  • Of the reported pool fatalities for children younger than age 15, about 60 percent (231) occurred in in-ground pools; 15 percent (59) in above-ground pools, and nearly 10 percent (37) in portable pools.
  • There were no reported entrapment fatalities for 2012. The last recorded fatality of a child due to suction entrapment was in 2007. CPSC received seven reports of entrapment injury incidents during 2012.

For the complete reports see: Pool and Spa Submersions 2013 (pdf) and Circulation/Suction Entrapments 2013 (pdf). The years for reported injury and fatality statistics differ due to a lag in fatality reporting.
