This much water

When I was 5, I nearly drowned in a pool. There were probably 20 adults all supervising, but no one was really watching. It's not that they didn't care, but I guess everyone thought that "someone else" was paying attention. I was lucky that day that my teenage cousin pulled me out, but kids don't just drown in pools or the ocean, they can drown in a very small amount of water. Please, if there's water around, don't take your eyes off them.

Please take a minute to watch this YouTube video and share with as many people as you can.
If you care, share.


  1. How sad to hear you nearly drowned Marnie. It only takes a second doesn't it. Thanks for sharing. (Bet they're sorry they got Kyle Sandilands in the ad.)

  2. Hi Marnie,

    Isn't it amazing how fast these things happen! So glad you were rescued quickly!

    When I was 4 my mom and I were standing in about a half of foot of water at the beach and suddenly all the lifeguards were blowing their whistles and motioning everyone to the beach and ... WHOOSH! We both got carried out by a rip tide within seconds! Luckily the lifeguards came out and got us, but its so scary how fast you can go under - in the ocean or in a pool!


  3. Pretty! This has been an extremely wonderful post.

    Thanks for supplying this info.
