This weather encourages even the non-swimmer to have a go in water. Fortunately I've never experienced anyone drowning athough I've spent many hours plodding up and down swimming pools. Swimming in the sea has never held any attraction perhaps because I was always warned, as a child, it could be dangerous.
I have to admit I've always imagined someone drowning would be shouting for help, flaying around and generally showing signs of serious distress - the typical portrayal of drowning in films.
Everyone, particularly parents, should read this blog post. Discover the truth. Being aware just may help save someone who can't help themselves.
