In addition, on page 520, in the second paragraph, the fourth and fifth sentences should read:

"Fifteen of the 16 incidents in this case study occurred at New York state bathing facilities that require an operating permit from their local health department, or under the oversight of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. All incidents had witnesses who reported predrowning behaviors. However, research suggests that more than half of drowning incidents are not witnessed (9,10)."

Finally, the following acknowledgments should be included:
