ASTONISHING! You’ll Never Believe What This 16-Month Old Child Can Do In The Water.

Advertisement

Every year, hundreds of babies die from drowning in pools. With the proper training, a baby can learn how to swim and flip over to breathe when they get tired. This video is an incredible example of what can be taught to any child.

The following is from the video’s description:

This child (Elizabeth age 16 months) has been trained by a professional ISR instructor. I, myself, am a registered nurse and my wife was a life guard for six years and taught swimming for three. Not only are we both professionally trained in CPR and water safety I am certified in advanced pediatric life support. The child in the video (Elizabeth) has been trained properly by ISR certified instructors.

Our ISR Swim instructor is Ilise @ http://www.isrwaterkids.com/

At no point do we force our child to do anything she is unwilling to try. We are able to recognize infant/toddler fatigue in the swimming pool. Elizabeth is a very determined little girl and sometimes she wants to roll over and breath as she was taught and sometimes she wants to hold her breath the whole way. I was 100% prepared to jump in at first sign of distress. Please watch some of the other videos I’ve posted of her swimming and spread the word. Teach your child how to swim because it only takes a moment for them to slip under and drown. some times the difference between life and death can be six inches of water and their ability to flip over on their back and take a breath.
My astonishment is not in the fact that she could swim across the pool because I always knew she could do it. My astonishment came from the fact that she didn’t turn around and come back to me. This was her first time she didn’t come back to me :)

Please! do not just throw your child in the water and expect them to swim. That is both dangerous and a quick way to traumatize your child and scare them from ever swimming. ISR uses specialized techniques in training infants and toddlers.

Please SHARE this incredible video with friends and family, especially those with young kids!
