The Consumer Product Safety Commission released a snapshot of the number of drowning or near drowning incidents from Memorial Day to July 4th of 2011. The release conincided with Pool Safety Day across America and also in conjuction with the American Red Cross's National Water Safety Survey.

According to the report, there have been 48 drownings and 75 near-drowning incidents in 35 states and territories. The numbers have drawn attention to the issue of pool and aquatic facilities safety and also the need for added vigilance. Pool Safety Campaign leader for the CPSC, Kathleen Reilly, said "We want to encourage everyone to remember that simple steps save lives. You never know which safety step will save a life ...until it does."

The CPSC hopes that the numbers will decrease over the rest of the summer after the awareness campaign. Keep safe this summer by educating your family about the simple steps around water that can help save their lives.
