People over 65 years old are the most likely age group to drown in New Zealand, a water safety expert has revealed recently. Water Safety NZ CEO Jonty Mills told The AM Show that due to people living longer and wanting to jump back into the water, the drowning statistics for this age group have risen. "The last three years, interestingly, it's the over-65s that have been the highest category [in drowning statistics]."

Nearly three-quarters of those drownings were people who were on their own. "There's no one there to help them or no one to call for in a lot of situations," Mills said. His comments come after eight preventable drownings had occurred in New Zealand in 21 days from the start of 2020. The drownings have claimed the lives of all age groups from toddlers to elderly people.
