Don’t let someone drown

READ AND HEED: Drowning doesn’t look like drowning.  I learned this several years ago while hosting a pool party.  One of the kids got in over her head and was in serious trouble, not ten feet from her parents, who stood paralyzed like deer in headlights.  I downed tools, stepped into 6 feet of water, and dragged the kid into the shallows in less time than it takes to type this.  But if I’d been away in the crapper, I’d have come back to a dead kid in the pool. Dumb luck and memory of some near-drowning of my own saved the day.
