Emergency Tactics

Drowning

What happens: Your child may sink out of sight under water or may thrash about trying to stay afloat.

What to do: Have someone call for help right away while you get your child out of the water. If he's not breathing, begin CPR and chest compressions, if needed.

What not to do: Don't enter the water if you can reach the child without doing so. Avoid letting him grab you.
