Today’s blog is to announce a podcast I just recorded and published with one purpose: To reach as many parents as possible and potentially save the life of a child. The purpose of the podcast is not only to prevent unnecessary drowning, but to prevent and recognize how devastating nonfatal, near drowning can be as well.
I have dedicated this podcast to Samual Morris. Samual Morris did survive a nonfatal, near drowning, but today he suffers from a hypoxic brain injury causing a lifelong disability. His mother Jo-ann writes, “there is no cure for my child.”
Nonfatal near drowning can occur in seconds causing brain damage that may result in long-term disabilities, including memory problems, learning disabilities, and permanent loss of basic functioning.
The podcast challenges parents, in fact, begs parents to NEVER underestimate how easy it is for a child to find himself in a life or death situation in the water. Please join me in our fight against drowning and share this podcast with as many parents as possible. Together we CAN make a difference and save the life of a child.
