Tips for Water Safety

I have often heard children, adults and criminals say “It won’t happen to me” or “I won’t get caught.” This phrase is generally used to describe or justify an act one is about to commit with the potential for a negative outcome. This summer I have heard many unnecessary, tragic stories of death and/or serious injury resulting from persons having ignored warnings and taken risks that ended or crippled the life of a loved one. Parents continue to risk their young child’s safety by leaving them unsupervised in or near water.
