Re: Drowning doesn't look like drowning

Great info.

Choking is also a deceptively quiet disaster.

Actually, Wolfie,

That's why the moderators made it a sticky! Thank you for noticing.

If you did not watch the video I linked in post 11, I would encourage you and EVERYONE reading this discussion, to do so. One of the scariest videos I have seen. Not because it is graphic or violent but how hard it is to notice a drowning kid in a pool full of other ids. VERY easy to miss and you have 20-60 seconds to notice...

Later,
Dan

Re: Drowning doesn't look like drowning

Should be mandatory information for all water sports. I pulled a victim out of a rip current last year who was within moments of drowning. There were about a dozen other people in sight of her, but no one else recognized she was in trouble.

It's a quick read, and worthwhile -- this info might save a life

This is a great video. Thanks for the needed reminder from an ex lifeguard.

Few tips for older kids is teach them the importance of the buddy system, studying the sea for, and how to act in a rip/emergency plan. Also, the sea can look deceptively benign if your sitting on a beach that's higher than the waves.
