In my opinion, it's not very 'child friendly.' indecision


Floating, if you fall in water or get into trouble in a sea current, is hugely important because it's the ideal position to help breathing and also conserves energy. This prevents drowning due to exhaustion. It gives others time to come and rescue you. In addition, falling into cold water causes 'cold water shock,' which makes you gasp and take in water. Floating enables your body to get used to the cold, so you can breathe normally. Fighting the instinct to swim hard and just float saves lives. Floating is SO important!


The Royal National Lifeboat Association - RNLI - have a similar campaign called 'Float To Live.'
