    Thank you so much for this. Also, something I recently learned is that anyone who has a near drowning experience must be checked out at hospital. If they ingest water into their lungs, they can drown later on even though they seemed fine and are on dry land.

    This happened to me on the weekend, my son was 1 m away but had his back to me. I had no idea he was in distress until my husband yelled. It was SILENT.

    I first heard of dry drowning on Oprah of all places.
    A heart breaking story of a young boy's first time in the pool.
    His granny had brought him, I'll never forget the poor woman.

    I had no idea. I just assumed that I would see a whole lot of flapping about before it got to the point of only bobbing up.

    This will be my boys first swimming season.

    Thanks so very much!

    I was at my son's swilling lessons last week, in the section next to his were 2 girls who we all thought were playing and being silly bobbing up and down... Imagine our surprise when we realised one of them was choking on water! Right in front of her mother and several others.

    THAT was a very shocking moment to realise just how quickly it can happen!

    I should also mention, same goes with choking on food! It is a silent thing (when choking your body stops you from breathing in incase the item gets lodged further down the throat).

    Keep an eye on your kids when eating.

    This was so scary to read. Thank you to whoever bumped it up.

    And people wonder why I am so worried about proper supervision around water?!
