More drownings occur from a toddler falling into toilet water than in outside swimming pools. A toddler is top heavy and, while playing in the water or reaching for a toy that fell in, they also fall in head first, swallowing a gulp of water and choking because the toilet lid has been left up.
One inhalation of water blocks the windpipe, the baby strangles and this is considered a drowning. Yes, a child can drown in one inch of water in just three seconds.
