Royal Life Saving Society Urging People Not to Drink and Swim

Following the revelation that male drowning victims are often under the influence of alcohol, the Royal Life Saving Society has urged people not to drink and swim.

New data from the Royal Life Saving Society revealed that 18 per cent of men who drowned between July 1, 2003 and June 30,2018 had alcohol in their system. In 42 per cent of cases, blood alcohol content was unknown.

Don’t let the combination of warmer weather and outdoor gatherings lead to a deadly situation, keeping in mind that alcohol increases the risk of drowning by impairing judgement, reducing coordination and delaying reaction time.
