I remember posting this on my fb last year re-posted off a friend who's daughter almost drowned at swimming lessons and need resuscitation
I was shocked and scared when I read it the first time
This should go into the Bounty Bags they give you at your first hospital visit...
Thanks for sharing...
Thanks Tam for posting this.
I did know that this is what drowning usually is, but I learnt that and have seen a few people almost drown like this. Our parents had a pool and they knew about this too and my Mum always said that if we are not making noise that is when she is worried etc.
I am glad you posted this though, because my husband just does not get it, no matter how many times I try to explain to him.
A story on adult drowning... I was at a pool when I was younger and a man was swimming laps and then he stopped and just sunk... the lifeguards there thought that he was just doing that on purpose, but 11 and 13 year old siblings just went and pulled him up (not easy to pull a full grown man full of water to the surface). He was unconsious. Apparently nothing else happen, not heart attack etc, he had just almost drowned because he was so tired, didn't realise how tired he was and when he tried to lift his arms and head out of the water he couldn't and then he drew a breath of water against his will and sunk. That story reminds me to always leave the water if I feel tired too. Fatigue in the water can really catch you off guard.
Thank you. Have posted to fb.
Thankyou i posted to FB
This qote is stuck in my mind especially the bolded bit.
of the approximately 750 children who will drown next year, about 375 of them will do so within 25 yards of a parent or other adult. In ten percent of those drownings, the adult will actually watch them do it, having no idea it is happening
Thank you, will pass along.
Thanks for sharing.
This is why those fake/reality shows shouldn't be happening like Bondi Resuce
