    Water-borne diseases, obviously - but that's indirect.
    Dono whether you meant direct only or what, Rajeev?

    I'd think that drowning would be the number 1 killer, besides diseases.

    Do mean could being hit by the water hurt you in itself?

    Being hit can't exactly, but the water can cause several types of injury:
    "Abrasion" (sort of) where, basically, small things in the water impact on the body and cause damage.
    "Corrasion" (sort of - again) where the force of the water slams you into standing things.
    "Hydraulic action" (sort of - yet again) - where pure force of water and turbulence in the water impacts on the body.
    Not nice, really.
    And of course, if none of these get you, you can always drown.
