Orange County is second only to Los Angeles County in the number of swimming pool drownings statewide involving children 1 to 4 years old, according to a study released Wednesday by a consumer advocacy group. The California Public Interest Research Group found that 14 Orange County toddlers died and 32 were injured in pool accidents in 1993, the most recent year for which figures are available.
