Ice Drowning Incidents Normally Result From Negligence

By Doan Law Firm  Feb. 19, 2011 12:45p

Drowning accidents which occur on ice can be extremely dangerous due to the excessive cold. When  a person is submerged in freezing cold water, even for a short period of time, the lungs can freeze and a person can die within moments. Many of the accidents that involve ice drowning are a result of someone's negligence. As an example, when children are left unsupervised or poorly supervised, they can venture into dangerous places and fall through ice into freezing water. Drivers who are careless or under the influence of drugs or alcohol have been known to drive out on to ice that could not carry the weight of the vehicle, and have killed or injured themselves and others. Both of these examples involve poor judgment and negligence.

Boating accidents in cold regions can also be the cause for ice drowning.
