Already, nearly 80 children have died from drowning in the state of Texas this year. Most of those were in unsupervised waters.
A child can drown in as little as one inch of water so it’s critical to keep constant eye contact while children are in the water. It is best to take kids to an establishment with a certified lifeguard. All families with a backyard pool should have at least one adult trained in CPR and First Aid.
If you’re interested in becoming a trained lifeguard, contact the American Red Cross at http://www.redcrossdallas.org/.
