My brother in law who's training to get on the fire department told me about this. I was skeptical until I watched the video. I'm going to try and get some more info on it and maybe find a class. If you're interested, let me know.

I watched on the Today Show, the people who teach this type of swimming lesson. It was very intersting to watch. Brings on lots of emotions.

i've seen that before, but the first time i did i was in tears. it's so cool! part of me wants to jump in and save him and part of me says to myself, duh there's a person there with a camera... they're not going to let the kid drown. i've heard the lessons are really tough to go through. more so for the parents i guess.

That is amazing! I had mixed emotions but I knew it was safe! I think I am going to teach my kiddos to do that!

Thanks for sharing!

Very cool. I'm like the others here, it was hard to just sit and watch. I kept thinking, "somebody get that baby out of the pool!!"
so glad I don't have a pool. But, it would still be smart to get those lessons anyway.

Wow, that's pretty crazy but I think it's a good idea.
