Fatal and nonfatal injuries to children can occur almost anywhere. However, the age of the child can help parents determine which places present the greatest risk statistically. For example, small toddlers are at the biggest risk for falls and drownings in areas where there is water such as a river, lake, pond, or swimming pool. For children ages, 5 to 19 years of age, playing sports and driving or riding in motorized vehicles present the highest risk for severe injuries or fatality.
The following locations are statistically more dangerous to all ages of children.
- Riding in or Driving an Automobile
- Swimming Pools, Rivers, and Lakes.
