Drowning in Drink

The Royal Life Saving Society Australia in Perth launched its centenary year in 2009 with a shock print advertising campaign designed to remind adults about the dangers of mixing alcohol with aquatic activities. Two print advertisements show a man drowning in a glass of beer, and a woman slumped on the rocks in her glass of vodka and cranberry. “Almost half of all adult drowning deaths involve alcohol. Don’t drink and drown.”
