New Zealand has one of the highest drowning rates per capita in the developed world. Statistically drowning annually is our third highest cause of unintentional death.
Each year we unfortunately see many tragedies in our waterways with some of the victims being the would be rescuers. In many of these cases the original victim survived.
Drowning Prevention Auckland are currently promoting the 4R's approach to help prevent would be resucers from drowning.
Is someone in trouble in the water? Do the 4Rs.
Help spread the word today by telling your family and friends about the 4R's.
