In Mississippi and other States, children and teens enjoy swimming during summer months. Unfortunately, many children lose their lives every summer from drowning related incidents. Some drowning deaths and injuries are avoidable with better safety precautions, supervision, better judgment by the swimmer, and the use of a buddy system. Some children who drown cannot swim while others are experienced swimmers who tire out or experience and issue or challenge while swimming. It is always advisable to take precautions prior to swimming. Do not swim alone. If children are swimming, adult supervision is key to safety.
