Drowning is unfortunately too common in Indiana. Whether the drowning occurs at a private residence or a public facility, a swimming pool, lake or reservoir, there are often rules that apply which are designed to prevent drowning from occurring. Despite the fact that these rules are designed to save lives, they are not always followed and the results are tragic.
Drowning cases require prompt and thorough investigation into the facts. It is important to obtain and preserve witness accounts as quickly as possible. It may also be important to obtain photographs of the area, making particular note of the number and location of any warning signs.
