07-09-17 Learn to Swim

Thursday 7th September 2017

Heart breaking news today from Abu Dhabi: 4 boys drowned today while playing at a farm. They were brothers and cousins aged between 10 and 12, sporty and clever…but they never learned to swim.

The boys all died one after the other after falling into a 1.5 metre-deep water basin near where they were playing football. The first boy slipped and fell into the water, and one by one his friends jumped to try to save him. None of the boys could swim.

4 hours away is Kingsley who swims unaided well enough in pools. However its the open water that is ever more dangerous. He’s swimming out there like a champ.
