Sun, sea and safety

27th July 2007 at 01:00
A new scheme aims to provide primary pupils with life-saving skills for beach holidays. Organisers of the Get Safe 4 Summer campaign, run by the Amateur Swimming Association, hope to give water safety lessons to over 2,000 children. On average, 450 to 500 people drown every year. Drowning is the third highest cause of accidental death among children in Britain.
