The unseasonably low temps and high rainfall have come to an end. Temps have now been soaring. Spending time in the water to stay cool has become a welcome activity for many.
Although my children remain ill and we have not been able to be out enjoying the water recently, I wanted to share this article with you. I read it at the beginning of the summer and did think about it when we were in the water earlier in the season.
I found this article, written by Mario Vittone who has 19 years of service in the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard, to be a very educational read. I was a bit surprised to learn what drowning does and does not look like.
I hope I never have to use this knowledge, but I am glad to have a greater understanding of what, exactly, I need to be aware of when in the water.
