Did You Know?



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.

It is a fact that more swimmers drown than non-swimmers.

Probably because more swimmers go swimming Joe!

I'm with Billy on this one Joe, but I see what you mean. That's statistics for you. :)

Very interesting information and I think, not many people know that.
Should certainly be publicised and may save lives.

It certainly opened my eyes Apogee. Hopefully a parent or two is now aware that their child won't start thrashing around if it is in trouble in water.

Read and noted.

Should be a public information film on the telly, maybe repeated on holiday programmes.

Good idea Rightwinggit, but a bit too sensible for the BBC.
