Sixty years ago, I ran into the shallow end of a pool with a "ring" float around the waist. Turned upside down, and took in the underwater view. My 37-year-old father-at-the-time hauled me out before I consumed water. And then there was the time my four-year-old son walked absent-mindedly into a pool, requiring me to jump in fully clothed to get him out. ... Parents, keep close attention to your children.
