Toddler Rushed to Hospital From Near Drowning After Pool Floatie Slipped Off

Swimming is great fun for kids, especially in the summer! There are many safety rules to consider in and around water though.

While little ones are learning to swim, or even if they are natural swimmers, they should wear a good quality swim aid or vest.  But a mistake that parents make is thinking that swim vests and floaties are like life jackets. Swim aids are NOT designed to replace an actual life jacket for toddlers or kids life vest.

Oklahoma mom Katy Wreyford was a lifeguard one summer. Trained in CPR, she never had to use her it until this week.
