Thanks for posting.. I know exactly how this happens, I vividly remember Lmost drowning as a young child and this is exactly what it is like....
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.
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' ...
* yes yes, it's an iPhone, please don't hold it against me ... *
def worth another bump

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.
