With another scorching summer approaching, authorities are pleading with swimmers to use caution as the number of people drowning has jumped by ten percent since last year.

Australia is world-famous for its beautiful beaches.

Unfortunately, they also are a prime location for tragedy.

Figures released by the Royal Life Saving Society Australia show that during the last 12 months, 276 people fatally drowned in Australia.

That’s a ten percent increase on the year before.

Many drowning incidents involved recent migrants and new arrivals, says Stacey Pidgeon from the Royal Life Saving Society Australia.
