Texas Department of Family and Protective Services have accounted that there have been 36 children and teenagers who have drowned in Texas this year. This does not include the month of July which accounts just over 17 percent of the drownings that occur in the year.
Since 2010, on average, 50 percent of drownings occur in the swimming pool. Twenty-seven percent of drownings occur in lakes and ponds.
Drowning is a leading cause of accidental death among young children that usually occur from May through July. It stands to reason with the children out of school and the weather is hot.
However, the City of Cuero provides eight free lessons for any child from the ages of 5-18.
