Swimming in safety

7th May 2004 at 01:00
As the summer temperature rises, so does the number of deaths from drowning. R U A DUMMY 2? is a useful pack highlighting the dangers.

Young people get into trouble in water for a mixture of reasons, including ignorance and disregard of hazards and unrealistic notions of their swimming ability. The CD-Rom contains video clips showing the bravado that leads to jumping off bridges and the power of rising water to sweep children's bodies away. Points for discussion explore how rivers and canals can be fun without being fatal. For a copy of the pack call RoSPA (Water and Leisure Safety).
