"There are a thousand ways to die (it’s even a TV), but few seem as horrible and inspire such primal fear as death by drowning. Drowning is uncommon but by no means rare in the U.S.: it’s the second leading cause of death by injury in the U.S. among toddlers (3 per 100,000 among children aged 1 to 4), and you are 200 times more likely to die by drowning during a boat ride as to die from trauma during a trip by automobile. Drowning kills about 500,000 people a year worldwide, according to the WHO. David Szpillman, Joost Bierens, Anthony Handley, and James Orlowski provide an update on drowning in the May 31 2012 New England Journal of Medicine."
