Pools are a great way to relax and have fun in the warmer weather. Even though it’s still technically winter, if you’re in the south it’s still pool season.
But now is a good a time as any to prep your children with pool training. Accidents can happen all too easily as little people slip, jump or fall into water when they can’t swim.
Leek Reynolds is a fantastic swimmer at just seven. Over the holiday weekend, he saw a toddler jump into the hotel pool without a life jacket. No one else saw but him, there were no adults around.
He knew better than to jump in with her, as people panicking can often drown the rescuer. He grabbed the pool skimmer and used it as a crane to pull the girl to safety.
