Instinctive Drowning Response

I watched some teenaged kids do some stupid things in a few kayaks and paddleboards tonight and I actually called SAR because they were in so much trouble and far too far away from land. They just made it back and I called and cancelled the SAR guys but it reminded me of this. I know its been on here before but I think a timely reminder might help someone. I'm sorry the story is a bit lurid but the information in it is golden. Remember to stay safe out there!

I worked as a lifeguard in high school and college. It's often hard to tell, and much better to err on the side of caution.
