Summer is a season filled with sunshine, barbecues, and recreational swimming! Whether in a pool at home, at a friend’s, at the lake or the ocean, many kids and adults choose swimming as a top recreational activity each summer.
Water safety is top priority for many parents for good reason. According to the CDC, drowning is the leading cause of death in children ages 1-4. Though prevention is key, knowing how to perform CPR could save your child, like in this recent story of a mother saving her 7-year-old son with CPR after nearly drowning.
