Every year we read of mainly children drowning in piscines and even this weekend a 17 year old drowned in a lake close to Toulouse.
Yet one in seven French people do not know how to swim which according to authorities contributes to the 500+ deaths each summer. Conversely the older the demographic of a group the less likely they are to be able to swim. In fact the over 65s make up a significant proportion of those drowned.
