Drowning is quick, it is silent, and it is also preventable

• Drowning is the single leading cause of death
for children ages 1 to 4
• Drowning is a leading cause of death for teens
• Parents are multitasking at home, risking distraction
more than ever
• Summer is about pools and water play
• Drownings can be prevented

We offer a series of PSAs to raise awareness about the risks of children drowning. The American Academy of Pediatrics is urging parents, and other adults, to plan multiple layers of protection to keep children and teens safe around water this summer. This is especially important during the COVID-19 pandemic, as rates of preventable childhood injuries may increase.

In these PSAs, Olympic skier Bode Miller and his wife Morgan, as well as Tennessee mom and teacher Nicole Hughes, share how they each lost a child drowning in 2018. Now the families have partnered with the American Academy of Pediatrics to reach other parents – and hopefully save other children’s lives.

We urge you to share their important and timely message so other families can take steps to protect their children.

We urge you to air these PSAs and help prevent more deaths.

Thank you,
Susan Stevens Martin
