This also means never leaving children alone in bathtubs. A drowning can occur in minutes when someone stops paying attention or turns away. Teach children how to swim. Wear a life jacket when swimming. Never swim alone or in unsupervised areas. Do not dive in shallow water. Check the weather and avoid getting in the water if a storm is coming. Do not swim in a river after a storm because currents may be stronger. Check the water temperature and avoid swimming in really cold water. If you believe someone is drowning, call 911 or tell someone to call right away. The American Red Cross recommends that untrained rescuers avoid entering the water. Drowning people panic and will push you down. They can even drown you. Instead, rescuers should reach for the drowning person or throw him or her a flotation device, life jacket, rope, or any object that will float.
