Water Safety

It may look fun to swim in open waters such as lakes, rivers or canals, but there are lots of dangers associated with them, which are often hidden.

Even on hot days, water stays cold and can cause cold water shock- which is a key reason why people drown, and there may also be debris in the bottom of the water that can get caught around your legs. The water is often very unclean which can cause people to get infections or diseases.
