Royal Life Saving
Royal Life Saving is warning parents and carers across the south-west to keep watch of their kids.
The latest campaign has been launched highlighting a staggering 41 per cent of drowning deaths among children under 5 in Australia occur in 1-year-old toddlers.
Royal Life Saving is asking all parents to Supervise, Restrict, Teach and Respond. Active adult supervision prevents child drowning. Any distraction is dangerous and puts young children at risk around water.
Whether it is a phone or social media use, or carrying out everyday tasks, such as leaving a child unsupervised momentarily to cook, take the rubbish out or collect the washing, Alison Mahony from Royal Life Saving says - no task is worth your child’s life.
