Yes back on topic, that is really terrible. As an aside, I wonder how many of these drownings are due to children not knowing how to swim properly? I
really struggle to see how people even drown in a normal swimming pool unless they don't know what they are doing. And then you have to ask why are
they in the pool when they don't know how to swim in the first place?
My step mothers uncle drown in a pool when she was a child. So she has been terrified of water ever since and never learned to swim, as well as never
taught her son (my step brother). So he is 28 years old and can't swim. That is the real tragedy, I mean what if some day he has to swim to save his
life? And you just neglect to teach him that very important life skill? Blows my mind why she did that.
And then the other point, how can someone NOT know how to swim? I mean its not like it is hard. I guess panic is the deciding factor usually. Still
confuses me though.
