Royal Life Saving research shows that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples are four times more likely to die from drowning than non-Indigenous Australian's.

5 KEY FACTS ABOUT INDIGENOUS DROWNING DEATHS

  1. 26% are children under the age of 10
  2. Almost half (47%) occur in rivers
  3. 11% of victims were using boats or watercraft
  4. 29% of victims recorded a blood alcohol level of 0.05% or higher
  5. 12% involved flooding, most commonly driving through floodwaters

To support Indigenous communities and organisations to promote water safety education and drowning prevention strategies, Royal Life Saving has developed a range of useful resources.

Look out you Mob

With the support of the ANZ Staff Foundation, a range of fact sheets, A3 and A4 posters and web banners have been developed to help to reduce the high rate of drowning incidents while encouraging active participation in aquatic recreation activities through safer behaviour.
