Unintentional deaths by drowning are much more common when people are swimming. In 2007, there were 3,443 people who drowned in non-boating accidents compared to 496 people who drowned in boating accidents. Usually, children 14 and younger most commonly drown with a ratio of about one in five people. Accidental drowning is the second-leading cause of child injury or death for children ages 1 to 14.
