A drowning investigator’s plea to parents about water safety goes viral

Natalie Livingston has been in the aquatics industry for decades, training lifeguards and investigating aquatic accidents and drowning deaths. She is passionate about preventing the kinds of accidents she investigates, and that is why a Facebook post she wrote is now going viral.

  • Give safety briefings
  • Depths of water vs. height
  • How to get away
  • Distraction reminders
  • Designate breaks
  • Limited trust
  • Life jackets are cool
  • Educate
  • Hey, watch this…
  • See something, say something
