CPSC Definition: Other/Unknown Cases

The CPSC is aware of 11 other cases of drain entrapment occurring between January 1990 and August 2004; two of these cases resulted in death. In nine cases, the particular body part or object caught in the drain is unknown. There are two reports of drain entrapment where something being worn by the person became caught, neither resulted in death. In one case, a 43-year-old woman’s necklace became caught. The other case involved a 21-year-old man’s swim trunks.
