A recent study carried out by the Figaro has shown that there are four deaths by drowning every day in France - Between June 1 and July 26, 251 people died by drowning. Family swimming pools, often unsupervised, have the most fatal drownings according to the survey: 103 in two months. Children under six years are the first victims. Adults are more likely to drown at sea, due to imprudence, discomfort or because the victims did not know how to swim well enough. Every summer there are about 500 deaths from drowning in France, children and adults.
