If you spend any time near the water--I'm guessing you do if you're on this forum--please read this.

Thanks for posting this. Great info most people don’t know and hopefully will never need to.

This is terrible advice.

From the article:

"Look for these other signs of drowning when persons are in the water:"

Head low in the water, mouth at water level (IE EVERY KITER TRYING TO SELF RESCUE
Not using legs – Vertical (IE EVERY KITER WHOSE LOST THEIR BOARD)
Hyperventilating or gasping (IE EVERY KOOK IN THE GORGE)
Trying to swim in a particular direction but not making headway (YEAH)
Trying to roll over on the back ( Smile
