My sister just sent me this article. I found it shocking - had no idea how misinformed I was about drowning; but it makes total sense. People who are actually drowning cannot do any of the things that we expect a drowning person to do - yell for help, wave their arms, kick, or splash. All swimmers, boaters, or others who are around water - especially parents with young children - should know what the actual signs of a drowning person are. Please pass along and share widely.

Glad to see this already made it around. Hopefully it eventually becomes widely known to all.
