Doc Talk: Summer activities bring possible health risks

Summer is a season of relaxation and fun, but parents also need to be aware of the risks associated with summer activities. Each day, two children under the age of 15 die from drowning. It is the second leading cause of death for children 14 and younger. For each child who dies, four more children go to an emergency room for treatment of injuries resulting from being submerged in water. Many of those end up hospitalized, and the outcome can include severe brain damage.
