Infants' attraction for water: A dangerous play
School of Medical and Health Sciences
Studying how infants interact with water and upon high surfaces has a clear practical importance. In this study, we assessed infants' perception and behavior near water surfaces and potential falls using a 'water cliff' and a 'real cliff' (75 cm high).
If infants are attracted toward water more than air, they may be at greater risk of immersion, and thus drowning accidents.
