Abstract:
173 people have drowned in Charlotte-area lakes, rivers, ponds, and pools since 2005. Six times between 2005 and 2015, Mecklenburg County led the state in annual drowning deaths. Most drowning deaths are of men and boys and most are preventable. Knowing risks and prevention measures may save lives in the future.
