Do you know what to do if someone is drowning?

Many people that drown are within 10 feet of safety, having unintentionally entered the water. You should never go near anybody struggling to stay afloat because you could drown too! To help rescue someone extend a pole, stick, line, or clothing to reach them or throw something floatable to them. The “Reach, Throw, Row, Go for Help” rescue method is used to avoid multiple drownings.
