The purpose of this study was to investigate drowning death patients on clinical care and prevention. Drowning accidents that occurred in the Republic of Korea were identified by using the Emergency Activity Daily Report Data from the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA). The age of drowning accidents was 20-29 years (25.4%). Drowning cases for the months of August was 17.6%. The main circumstance involved in the drowning cases was swimming (45.0%). Half of swimming incidents related the drowning accidents of people attempting to save a life of a family member or friend from the water. The most common location was at a lake or reservoir (40.2%). Drowning is a main cause of accidents in the Republic of Korea. Preventive strategies that may be beneficial for persons contain life jackets or life rings supply, upgrading swimming ability, placing lifeguards based on public education activities.
