Very true, my daughter almost drowned and we were all sitting around the pool. She was 5 years old and was jumping from the edge into the pool & back out again. She kept doing that and must have gone deeper and deeper, the next thing you know, she was close to the deep end. Meanwhile the grownups are all talking. She went too far and couldn't reach the bottom, but you know what, she didn't panic...she just was bobbing there, until she didn't come up again! This guy jumped in to save her, because I can't swim.
After that, I enrolled both my children into swimming classes, and they both can swim now. Thank God!
