Parents devastated by loss raise awareness on kids' drowning risks

Children younger than 5 are among the most likely to die in drowning deaths. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says nearly 70 percent of child deaths happen when they're not expected to be in the water. Olympic ski racing champion Bode Miller and his wife, Morgan, lost their 19-month-old daughter, Emmy, in June.

The Millers, Hughes and American Association of Pediatrics' Dr. Ben Hoffman join "CBS This Morning" to raise awareness on drowning prevention.
