Prof and Class- Here is my attempt at the assignment. How many children drown yearly? How can drowning be prevented? Where can I get information about pool safety? How long does it take for a child to drown? How many children pass yearly due to drowning?

There are several ways to prevent drowning. Invest in a pool gate and a quality lock for the gate. Invest in swim lessons at  your local YMCA or local pool if offered. Make sure there is ALWAYS an adult poolside when children are near or around
