Timely Warning for Summer

Post image for Drowning Doesn’t Look Like Drowning

My son almost drowned when he was quite young and had just learnt to swim.
I was only metres from him.
It still makes me sick to my stomach thinking about it.
It was silent.
Read this article describing the instinctive drowning response.
It's not what you would expect.

  1. I remember standing right beside my daughter watching her in knee deep water and her slipping and not being able to get up - it was exactly as this article describes. Thank God I was right beside her.

    A friend of mine who has a pool says whenever she has several kids over, she doesn't watch the kids as such, she watches the bottom of the pool.
