In Arizona and other states, children are the unfortunate victims of drownings. Some die from the drownings. Many others suffer brain damage and other injuries that can last a life time. Many people are mistaken to believe that the survival from a drowning means that there are no future problems. For parents like Angie Thomas, it is quite a different story. Her son, Ryan Thomas, was a normal 2 year old boy who loved to play. One day, Ryan got over a wall and into a neighbor’s pool. Ryan suffered a near drowning incident that left him with medical problems and complications that are still being treated to this day. Ryan, who is now 5 years old, is enrolled in special education kindergarten class and receives therapy for the injuries related to the near drowning incident.
