Summer Safety Week Focuses on Unintentional Drowning
It's National Summer Safety Week and the importance of wearing a life jacket while out on the water is being stressed by the Canadian Safety Council.
Drowning takes seconds and is the third leading cause of unintentional deaths around the world.
The majority of people drown from taking part in recreational activities and Canadian law requires that everyone out on the water in a boat must have a life jacket on.
A timely reminder as well to stay away from bodies of water as the Ministry of Natural Resources has issued flooding risks for the County of Renfrew.
