Men 25 to 34 have Highest Risk of Drowning

Recent reports by the Canadian Red Cross says adult males 25 to 34 are most at-risk of drowning while boating with 39% of drownings occurring as a result of a boating mishap. Alcohol was present or suspected in half of those drownings. The reports concluded that nearly 2,000 boating deaths over the past decade might have been prevented had basic boating safety measures been taken, such as wearing a life jacket.
