A change of topic as a warm weekend approaches here in New England and elsewhere. Jim, from Georgia, sent me this note, which I share with you. Short version: The person in this picture is probably not drowning.
Paul, I am a big fan of your blog and follow it regularly. The thing I have enjoyed is your dissemination of safety tips and practices. The Oconee Sailing and Yacht Club sent the attached out to all of its members emphasizing water safety awareness. I never read anything quite like it and it was very informative. I know your blog gets wide readership and I thought you might want to include it in a future issue. With water activities at their peak in the summer months perhaps someone will read it and save a life.
This article is on what it looks like when someone is drowning. It's not like in the movies.
