U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission shows how Quickly and Silently Children Can Drown Inside the Home
“But I was only gone for a moment…”
Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says every year, nearly 90 children drown inside the home, and two-thirds of these deaths occur in the bathtub. A child can drown in as little as 2 inches of water, and it happens quickly and silently. Every one of these tragedies is preventable.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) warns consumers about hidden drowning hazards for small children in and around the home. Too many deaths are associated with common household products.

Drug Overdoses Claim More Tennesseans in 2014
Nashville, TN – Even with the availability of naloxone, the opioid overdose antidote, and fewer prescription drugs being diverted, the number of Tennesseans who die each year due to drug overdoses increased again in 2014.
The total of overdose deaths rose by nearly 100, from 1,166 in 2013 to a record-setting 1,263 in 2014. If those numbers are hard to comprehend, consider this: more people died from drug overdoses in Tennessee last year than were killed in motor vehicle accidents.
