Each year 170 children are admitted to hospital after nearly drowning - and not just from playing in public swimming pools. This is because a small child can drown in less than two centimetres of water, so you need to be just as vigilant at bath time too. It’s never too early to start teaching your children good safety habits. Obviously, swimming lessons are an excellent starting point and will help your children build confidence in and around water.
I came across a great website that describes in detail vital statistics and the factors influencing drowning risks, where most incidents are likely to happen, as well as good safety tips and advice about child safety at home.
