Thousands of children in the United States die each year as the result of drowning. It is estimated that 11 babies drown each year. Babies can very easily get away from their parents once they learn to walk. All it takes is a few seconds for a tragedy to occur.
There is a video online that would scare anybody. The baby is seen wandering out of the house and he comes near the water. He ends up falling into the water head first. However, he manages to get from under the water by lying back and floating.
There is a group called the Infant Swimming Resource. They help babies and toddlers avoid drowning if they fall into the water. Babies are smarter than many people realize, and they can be trained to do a lot of things. Many of the drownings that occur each year can be prevented if babies knew how to float.
The video of the baby falling into the pool and getting himself out of the water has been viewed over 1.4 million times. It has also been shared over 1,200 times. People are encouraged to share the video because it can potentially help save a life.
