is 4 years old and he take swim lessons with Swim2survive.
At first I hesitated in signing him up for lessons because
I think he is too yong to learn. I finally decided that it
would be worth the peace of mind knowing that he could save
himself if the situation occurred. I am so glad I made the
decision to start the lessons! I was on the pool deck playing
with Jake. As I walked to the table to answer a phone call,
I heard a splash. I had only turned around for a second when
Jake reached for a ball that was in the pool and fell in.
I came around the corner to find him floating on his back
and breathing. I immediately pulled him out and he was a little
upset but otherwise perfectly fine. I am confident that the
swim2survive swimming lessons helped save his life.
was only 5 years old saving himself in our pool on Sunday,
June 1, 2008. Damain had just begun swimming lesson
a few week's earlier before the accident happen. We
had several neighborhood children play near our condo
swimming pool that Sunday. Damain was playing near the
pool when one of the older kids' ball came out by him.
Damain run toward the ball which is near the deep end
of the pool to catch it and to throw it to his friend.
The throwing momentum took him right into the deep end
of the pool. He immediately popped up toward the surface
and swam to the side of the pool. Damain didn't panic
at all. He instinctively and immediately started kicking
his legs as he looked under the water for the side of
the pool to reach for safety. Without Swim2survive swimming
lesson, I'm certain that the outcome would have been
a lot scarier and more traumatic for all of us. It is
unbelievable how fast it all happened.
We would like to thank Nico Yeo for being our fantastic
Swim2survive swimming instructor that saved our son's
