Did you know in Montana drowning is the second leading cause of death in children through 17 years of age. Here are just a few Montana stats: 29 children drowned in Montana ranging from infants up through 17 years of age (2013 through 2020). Fifty-two percent died in open water such as rivers, lakes, creeks; 28% died in other types of water: irrigation ditches, canals, etc.; and 17% died in bathtubs.
