9-year-old Girl Saves a Drowning Boy

Here's a news about real concern and helping others. 
Keniah Barnes, who just turned 9 last week, saved a drowning boy at her birthday party. It was a private pool party and everyone is having a good time when she noticed that a boy is underwater. She immediately swam to rescue the boy. 

"He was right there and he just drowned and I was looking at him. I thought he was just playing," said Keniah.
It is already summer 
indeed! Almost everyone, young and old, is aiming for a nice dip. However, it is advised that before you plan to go anywhere near the water, be sure to read these "Pool & Spa Safety" tips from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
  • Never leave a child unattended in or near a pool or spa and always watch your children closely around all bodies of water. Designate a Water Watcher to supervise children in the pool or spa. This person should not be reading, texting, using a smart phone or be otherwise distracted. Adults can take turns being a Water Watcher.
  • Teach children basic water safety tips.
  • If a child is missing, look for him or her in the pool or spa first.
  • Keep children away from pool drains, pipes and other openings to avoid entrapment.
  • Ensure any pool and spa you use has drain covers that comply with federal standards, and, if you do not know, ask your pool service provider whether your covers are in compliance.
  • Learn how to swim and teach your child how to swim.
  • Learn how to perform CPR on children and adults, and update those skills regularly.
  • Install a four-foot or taller fence around the perimeter of the pool and spa and use self-closing and self-latching gates; ask your neighbors to do the same at their pools.
  • Install and use a lockable safety cover on your spa.
  • Have lifesaving equipment such as life rings, floats or a reaching pole available and easily accessible.
