Misleading

The drowning stats actually are:

  • 2011: 132
  • 2012: 98
  • 2013: 107
  • 2014: 90
  • 2015: 113
  • 2016: 53 to date (vs 75 year to date in 2015)

So the toll did not increase by 90 in 2015, it increased by 23 from 90 to 113.

But there is no long-term trend. The toll fluctuates up and down every year and thankfully looks to be a lot lower in 2016.
