THE BIG BLUE WATER TOY. EVERYONE LOOKS AT THE POOL AND SAYS OH THE BIG BLUE WATER TOY... HAS DANGERS ATTACKED TO IT. LIFE THREATENING DANGERS.
Prevention is key to avoiding trouble. For starters, know your limits.
If you did not swim over the winter, you've lost half of what you could do at the end of last summer. So If you swam ten laps then, start with five now. Same goes for kids.
If someone does need help, know the basics. IF SOMONE'S IN TROUBLE THE NATURAL INSTINCT IS TO JUMP IN AFTER THEM. THAT SHOULD BE A LAST RESORT. A BETTER OPTION: THROW THEM SOMETHING LIKE THIS RED CROSS CERTIFIED RESCUE TUBE.
If the victim is close enough extend anything you can, a beach towel or pole... and pull the person in.
Your best bet- swim at a pool with lifeguards, But don't count on them to watch your kids. With a full pool- they can not see everything. ACCIDENTS HAPPIN IN A THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE AND THEY'RE GONE.
Four to six minutes under water and a child can be brain dead.
And don't count on swimmies or water wings- They are not considered protection. It even says so the product.
So if you're going swimming remember, Safety, Prevention and paying attention- IF YOU WATCH, IF YOU PAY ATTENTION IF YOU DO EVERYTHING RIGHT YOU MAY TAKE A CHILD HOME. IF YOU DON'T YOU WONT)) YOU'RE BETTING YOUR CHILD'S LIFE AND IT'S NOT WORTH IT.))
