Drowning does not look like it does in the movies. A drowning adult or child does not raise up their hands and shout for help. Drowning is silent. The victim may appear to be tilting their head back or climbing an invisible ladder in the water. They are too panicked to raise their arms out of the water. As summer approaches, and the weather warms up, please take precautions to keep your loved ones safe. Practice "touch supervision" for children. This means that a supervising adult should be within arm's length of the child with full attention focused on the child at all times when she is in or near water.
