47 people drowned in Victorian waterways in the year up to July 2014, an increase of six on the previous year, and the highest number of deaths in a decade*
Drownings can happen in any water environment. They take place in oceans and rivers, but also at home in swimming pools and even bath tubs. Babies and toddlers can drown in as little as a few centimetres of water.
