“In the past decade, 1,932 men have died in preventable tragedies. Drowning. One in four of these tragedies involved alcohol.
Men are four times more likely to drown than women, with males accounting for 80% of all drowning deaths.
Royal Life Saving with support by the Federal Government – have launched a campaign called “Don’t Let Your Mates Drink And Drown”.
We are urging men to look out for their mates by avoiding alcohol around water, and to stand up to the sorts of risk taking behaviour that can and do lead to tragic accidents and drownings.”
Campaign by Royal Life Saving (Australia, April 2017)
