My wife, Deb and I were watching the Drew Peterson story last night. He killed his wife and claimed she died in the bathtub.

The internet is the most awesome place on the planet.........when used to learn/obtain authentic data and facts(and not when its a source of DISinformation).

        Adults drowning in baths ‘very rare’, says Irish Water Safety                           

 In the UK, just under 4% of all accidental drownings last year occurred in a bath (but they are usually young children)

 The first post in this thread had an article about the accidental tub drowning that took the life of Dolores O’Riordon. She was such a talented singer and songwriter (for The Cranberries) who died way too young. She once  did a beautiful duet with the great Luciano Pavarotti of the beautiful song, Ave Maria. Note how much in awe she was in his presence though she very much held her own:
