Questions are often raised about whether or not a fatality should be counted as part of a motor vehicle traffic accident that involves an immersion harmful event (drowning). I propose that additional clarification be added under 2.4.4 unstabilized situation exclusion example #3 to state something to the effect of “an occupant of a vehicle that is sinking vehicle or that enter into swift moving water is not in ‘a position of safety’. In these occurrences the unstabilized situation has not ended, and any damage or injury is still part of the same unstabilized situation”.
