Drowning: Know what is Movie, Know what is REAL

I recently came across a REALLY good post from a round of link jumping.

You know what that is right? You’re on one site, they have a link, you click it, you end up on another site, see an interesting link, click it and re-peat 20 times.

Pretty soon you have no idea how you got to point A to point Q, but you’re glad you ended up there.

As a fly fishing fanatic, I already have a healthy respect for water and an acute fear of drowning.

After reading the following post, then thinking back to my own near drowning experiences (pre-healthy respect) I realize how quiet, silent even, my near death episodes were.

Since it’s that time of the year, I wanted to share the following post excerpt and encourage everyone to click the link and read the entire post.

Excerpt from Drowning Doesn’t Look Like Drowning

Drowning is not the violent, splashing, call for help that most people expect. The captain was trained to recognize drowning by experts and years of experience. The father, on the other hand, had learned what drowning looks like by watching television. If you spend time on or near the water (hint: that’s all of us) then you should make sure that you and your crew knows what to look for whenever people enter the water. Until she cried a tearful, “Daddy,” she hadn’t made a sound.

    WOW!!! Thanks so much for posting this because I would have had absolutely no idea what drowning looked like. I was one of the clueless ones who figured maybe the movies were right. Thanks again!
