1. Drowning, an underestimated risk

500 children drown per year in France

Drowning is the children's leading cause of day-to-day accidents. (source: Santé Publique France)

70% of drowning occurs in private pools, and children between the ages of 1 and 6 years old are particularly affected.

Every summer, authorities warn us about the increased risk of drowning and remind good practices to us. But nevertheless, every year in France, in summer, around 500 children under the age of 6 drown.

When the child is not supposed to go into the water

Armbands, swimming rings, etc. are worn by children when they are authorized to bath or swim, but not out of the water because not practical.

Also, this equipment don’t protect children if they ever fall in headfirst.

Despite the mandatory protections

We restrict access to pools with the use of gates, alarms, covers, etc. but they generally stay open/disabled during the summer for practical reasons.

Whether it be to avoid accidental falls or unsupervised swims, we only count on adult supervision. Unfortunately, adults’ attention isn’t flawless. In most drowning cases, an adult was less than 20 metres (66 ft.) away.

So it’s clear that, up to this day, something was lacking in children’s drowning prevention. And it’s with this reality in mind that we created Floatee, the anti-drowning T-shirt.
