    Yeah, that struck me, too. Absolutely horrible, I can only imagine how much grief and guilt I would feel for the rest of my life if I'd watched my child drown and not know. It's really scary, and horrifying

    This is why those fake/reality shows shouldn't be happening like Bondi Resuce
    If you watch bondi rescue closely you'll notice that most people they are rescuing are just bobbing in the water not calling out for help and there is lots if people around them who don't even realize someone is in real trouble beside then.

    But the show dosnt explain about the quiet drowning aspect though they are trying to educate people to swim in-between the flags and the dangers if rips and swimming at the beach. Because everyone thinks that it can't happen to them.

    Yup, they always scan the camera out on the water and you really need to look closely sometimes to figure out who is in trouble, and yup, the people nearest to them have no idea ...

    Yes Bondi Rescue is reality tv, but I wouldn't go so far as saying it's fake ... As the pp said, they focus on a different message which is 'swim between the flags' ...

    Thanks Tam,
    I lost my Cousin in 09 when she drowned in a public pool, and one of the things people do is blame everyone at the pool "why didnt anyone see her get in?" well, i wish they would read this.

    I think people need to realise as well that swimming lessons are very important, but they wont save a child if they are drowning, Parent supervision is the only foolproof way of making sure your child is safe in the water.
