The RNLI is warning people in coastal areas to watch out for the key dangers that can catch people out in or near water.

An average of 23 people die by accidental drowning around Ireland’s coastline each year, and about half of these people do not intend to enter the water – however, slipping or falling in, cold water and rip currents are the key dangers that can lead to accidental drowning.

The RNLI has launched its “Respect the Water” campaign to highlight the risk of accidental drowning.

Speaking with Midwest News,Joe Moore of the RNLI says people flock to the water when weather improves, but often with tragic consequences.
