How to Avoid Swimming Pool Accidents in New York

Swimming pool accidents in New York City can happen in the blink of an eye. Children are at the highest risk: 1 in 5 victims of accidental drowning in New York are 14 years old or younger. (Nationwide nearly 2,700 children 14 and under suffer from near drowning incidents every year.)

New York Officials Warn Boaters of High Risk

One doesn't often think of New York City when one thinks of summertime recreation on the waterways. New York City boating accidents often involve ferries and other mass transit/transportation. However, with an abundance of lakes and rivers within driving distance and the ocean just a short hop away, hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers enjoy the water every summer. However, as the results of one recent study shows, hitting the waterways in a personal watercraft can be very dangerous. Indeed, New York State as a whole ranks third in the nation for the number of boating accidents and seventh in the nation for the number of fatal boating accidents.

Skiing - Safe but Sometimes Dangerous Wintertime Recreation

Thousands of New Yorkers break out the skis when the snow falls but many underestimate the danger they're putting themselves in every time they step into their bindings. Statistics show there are, on average, 41 skiing fatalities per year (though 2011 saw 54). However, there are hundreds of moderate to severe skiing accidents in New York and across the country resulting in injuries requiring hospital visits and/or extensive treatment and recovery time.
