Bangkok Hospital Pattaya hosted its safe-swimming clinic for the sixth year to keep youngsters safe during their school holiday.
Hospital Executive Director Dr. Teeti Warinsirikul opened the April 26 lessons at Redemptorist Technological College with emergency personnel from Apakorn Kiatiwong Hospital and paramedics.
Youths ages 8-15 were taught the perils of different bodies of water – lakes, the ocean and swimming pools – and survival skills for themselves and others.
Kids were told not to jump in to rescue someone but call for help and throw floatable objects from shore.
The 60 kids were told how a panicking swimmer could drown the rescuer.
