Don't drink and drown ALMOST a third of drowning deaths in NSW are caused by people going swimming after drinking alcohol, new figures show. Latest statistics show alcohol was a factor in more than 30 per cent of the 517 NSW drownings from 2002-2007 and has prompted a warning to revellers. The five-year study, funded by the State Government, showed more than 80 per cent of these were male, with men aged under 30 most at risk. ''This is a very clear warning that we just can't afford to take the risk of combining alcohol and water-based activities,'' Sport and Recreation Minister Kevin Greene said. ''Unfortunately, most people think if they've only had a drink or two, they'll be okay in the water. ''However, many (who drowned) had only a small amount of alcohol in their bloodstream -- but enough to cost them their life.'' Caitlin Chellew, from the Royal Life Saving Society NSW, said while it was tempting to fit in a swim after lunch, people shouldn't take the risk if they had already been drinking. ''The simple message is if you've already had a beer, don't pull on your boardies,'' she said. ''Even small amounts of alcohol inhibit co- ordination, impair reaction times and judgment, disturb your balance, cause disorientation and remove your inhibitions. ''You don't have to have been on the turps all afternoon to be at risk of drowning.'' special buys from thurs 23 apr special buysTM smarter shopping aldi.com.au OPENING HOURS: See your local store or www.aldi.com.au for details.
