Another sad reminder of how a bit of Summer fun can turn to tragedy occurred this morning when a swimmer was found dead Friday morning at Lake Mead. The 40 year old swimmer whose name has not been released was announced missing Thursday night only to have his body discovered at 9:45 a.m. this morning. I would like everyone to take the time to read through these swimming tips and visit this LINK for more tips to keep yourself (and your family) safe.
• Alcohol and water do not mix. Never swim or go boating when you have been drinking alcoholic beverages. Remember, your life and the lives of your family members depend on it. Often, children drown in the presence of adults who have been drinking.
• Use a safety float line to separate shallow water from deeper water. Mark pool depths clearly.
• Only designated swimming areas of a lake should be used.
• Children and adults should wear approved personal flotation devices when in a boat. Small children also should wear flotation devices while playing near water or on piers.
• Families, especially those with backyard pools, should know how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Classes are offered by many hospitals and the American Red Cross.
