Who could have thought that a person only needed so little water to drown...
A short film about a "woman" drowning.

As Memorial Day Weekend approaches and many people open their pools for the summer, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is warning about the danger of residential pools to young children. The agency is unveiling a television public service announcement to alert parents and caregivers to what the drowning of a young child really sounds like.
CPSC reports there are about 260 drowning deaths of children younger than 5 each year in swimming pools, and, on average, an estimated 2,725 children are treated annually in hospital emergency rooms for pool submersion injuries mostly in residential pools. CPSC strongly advises that parents use layers of protection like fences and door alarms to prevent their children from becoming a drowning victim. For more information, visit www.cpsc.gov.
This is for the soldiers. Drowning Pool sing their patriotic hearts out for the troops abroad. The new album Full Circle is out in August.

Drowning Pool have stepped up their efforts for better mental health care for US Troops returning from battle. The band, along with the IAVA, presented Representative Patrick Murphy with a petition containing 25,000 signatures in support of the Lane Evans Veterans Health and Benefits Improvement Act.
Face/Off ~ Drowning Pool 'Step Up'
It was raining so heavily just now and flooded every road and drain in Penang Island. While my wife and I were having dinner, Khairul called and told me that he and Daniel saved a kitty from drowning and need my transportation as they were on bicycles. Without delay I finished up my dinner and went to see him. They have stopped neaby a goverment hospital carpark and when I reached there, both of them and the kitty were shivering. The kitty was rescued from drowning due to the flood at that area and she was stuck in the bushes with just her head could be seen. Fortunately Khairul heard the 'screaming' from the kitty or else the kitty might have been drown. His backpack is too soft and it would be hard for him to put the kitty in because of scaring the kitty might get suffocated on the way back.
Watch the video to find out who wants drowning pool to be their “Enemy”.

Drowning occurs more commonly when children get access to the pool during a short lapse in adult supervision. To reduce the risk of drowning, pool owners should adopt several layers of protection, including physical barriers, such as a fence completely surrounding the pool with self-closing, self-latching gates to prevent unsupervised access by young children. If the house forms a side of the barrier, use alarms on doors leading to the pool area and/or a power safety cover over the pool.
