Royal Life Saving released the 2017 National Drowning Report, Tuesday 12th Sept. The 2017 report is the first to examine the impact of both fatal and non-fatal drowning.

 

Tragically, 291 people lost their lives Australia wide to drowning. It is estimated an additional 685 non-fatal drowning incidents requiring hospitalisation occurred, many of these people will require long term medical assistance. Every drowning case represents an immense personal tragedy that will impact the lives of family, friends, rescuers and the community forever.
