Does "dry drowning" exist? Dr. Elizabeth Murray from the American Academy of Pediatrics says from a medical standpoint, the term has never been used.

Recently, a story about a child dying days after an incident in the pool has sparked social media attention. Dr. Murray says this is where the term "dry drowning" came from.

She joined us on Good Day Rochester to tell us what parents should be cautious about around the water.
