One of the great benefits of living in Wisconsin is the many beautiful lakes within our state and the great lake that borders our state, Lake Michigan. People utilize these fresh water lakes for various recreational activities such as swimming, fishing, and boating. However, an outing on a lake can take a drastic turn when a boating accident occurs. According to the US Coast Guard, in 2010 there were 4,604 accidents that involved 672 deaths, 3,153 injuries, and approximately $35.3 million dollars of damage to property as a result of recreational boating accidents.

Swimming and diving accidents happen in various bodies of water. Hotel pools, residential pools, lakes, beaches, and rivers are all bodies of water where accidents can and do occur.  According to the Centers for Disease and Control, every day about ten people die from unintentional drowning and of that number, two are children aged 14 and younger. In addition, a nonfatal drowning can cause life-altering brain damage that may result in long-term disabilities including memory problems, learning disabilities, permanent loss of basic functioning, paralysis, or spinal injury.

Contributing Factors to Swimming and Diving Injuries:

  • Lack of Supervision
  • Ineffective barriers
  • No pool or hot tub cover
  • Diving in shallow waters
  • Inadequate Signs
  • Alcohol
  • Poorly designed and constructed pools
