Where Did The Drowning Occur And Who Was At Fault?

Most drownings occur in natural water, not swimming pools. Not surprisingly, then, river drownings and lake drownings in Central Illinois claim many lives, year after year.

Not all drownings are due to the negligence of others. But many are, especially when alcohol or other bad choices are involved. If someone was at fault in your loved one's death, he or she should be held accountable.
