Cold Water Shock

As we are now experiencing warming weather we feel it is really important to share with you, children & young people the dangers of cold water.
During the hot summer weather it can be so tempting to go for a dip to cool off. Your friends might all think it’s a great idea. But do you know how dangerous it can be? Last summer saw a lot of people lose their lives in cold water. The effect on the body of entering water 15°C and below is often underestimated, this shock can be the precursor to drowning.
Have fun this summer and stay safe
