INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A new state report says that the children who drowned in Indiana's lakes and pools largely had a lack of adult supervision.
The Indiana Department of Child Services and the Department of Natural Resources issued the report Tuesday on the 11 youth drowning deaths 2011, the last year for which complete statistics are available.
Child agency director Mary Beth Bonaventura says in most cases, adults weren't paying enough attention to the children.
The DNR says three children have been among Indiana's 27 drownings so far this year. That includes a 2 ½-year-old boy who was found last month floating face down in a backyard pool in northeastern Indiana.
The 2011 drownings include a 3-year-old girl who drowned in a family pool while playing with other children.
