“In a single day, we located eight lost children. Three of them had gone missing at the same time.”
Rachel Connolly, Lifeguard, County Louth
A day with the kids at a beach, river or lake is free, healthy and fun. With the sun shining, waves crashing and people everywhere, it’s also a day full of distractions. It’s so easy for a child to become lost in the moment, and seconds later to be quite literally lost. That’s why it’s so important for parents to supervise children closely. Young children can drown in just a few inches of water.
