When Do Drowning Accidents Commonly Occur?
How can a drowning occur when people, particularly parents, are in close proximity? It's not as impossible as you may think. Drowning accidents happen in all sorts of situations:
- Alcohol consumption
- Distracted parents
- Inattentive lifeguard
- Poorly maintained pool area
- Seizures or other disorders
- Slip and fall
- Trusting floatation devices
- Unsupervised children
It only takes a minute or two for a drowning accident to occur. Water penetrates the lungs, prevents breathing and causes the lungs to decrease the amount of oxygen to the blood. The decrease of oxygen in the blood leads to brain damage. After four minutes without oxygen, brain cells die, and irreversible brain damage develops.
Irreversible brain damage will have a devastating effect on the entire family. Anger and grief are normal emotions. Seeing a loved one in pain and suffering is a hard thing to watch. Financially, the family will incur costs associated with emergency care, treatment, rehabilitation, accommodations and therapies such as cognitive, speech, occupational and recreational.
