Default Drowning does not look like Drowning

A reminder and a good read:

Great info. Thanks Phillbo.

Another common safety misconception for folks in colder water, surrounding hypothermia vs. cold shock:

I have saved the life of many people and even several children at the local pool, on the beach all the while people are all around and no one noticed that little kids blank stare or them going under their little hands struggling, the woman who had a drink and emotions got the best of her and now she is in distress, the grown man who ..... yes add your story and then reel it back in! I feel overwhelmed with emotion now just typing this to see the fear and pain in their eyes. Thankfully I was there but so many times no one notices and the little life, the little happy baby.. gone in a flash.
I make everyone wear a life vest when they get on my boat no matter what. They are called an ACCIDENT for a reason they are not planned emergency training. No one is ready for it, the best you can do is a Risk Assessment every time, dry land preparing and briefing before they get on including an assessment of their moods and intent. Life Vest, swim training, emergency equipment, first aid equipment, whistles, radios, canned horns anything and everything that can float might save a life. Who cares what length your boat is, get the best safety equipment you can, it could be the difference in life of someone you love, the life that someone else loves.

Be the everyday Hero.
