Types of Swimming Accidents
Swimming accidents happen for many reasons, including:

Swimmers who dive into shallow water – less than 6 ft. – or use a faulty or broken diving board may suffer serious injuries that require medical attention. Many suffer from spinal cord or brain injuries.
Circulation Entrapment Injuries
These types of injuries occur when a swimmer gets trapped due to the suction caused by water rushing into a pool or hot tub drain. Circulation entrapment can result in severe injuries, including drowning, disembowelment, and amputation.
This is when a person is submerged under the water for a period of time, leaving the person unable to breathe. During a near-drowning, the body is deprived of oxygen. Near-drowning can result in acute respiratory distress, brain damage, or leave the person in a permanent vegetative state.
