12 juillet 2021 - Study Reveals Drowning Among Older Adults is Increasing

A recently published study analyzing 10 years of unintentional fatal drowning data from Australia, Canada and New Zealand indicates that the proportion of drowning deaths that occurred among older adults increased from 15% to 24% over the period (2005–2014).

Using population projections, the authors estimate that by the year 2050, between 209 and 430 older adults (65+) will die from drowning in Canada each year, compared to an average of 81 per year during the study period.
