Drowning Statistics

The Texas Department of Family & Protective Services tracks fatal drownings of children, age 17 and younger, in Texas. Sadly, in 2016 there were 107 fatal drownings, up 43% from the previous year. So far in 2017, there have been at least 25 fatal drownings.  It is estimated that are 6-7 times more non-fatal drownings than fatal drownings.
