aspirated water they would look and act sick becoming progressively worse over the next six 12 hour >> we shouldn't rely on ourselves to know that there was necessarily an event that was significant. take your eyes off your kid for two seconds a significant event could have occurred. that highlights the importance of paying attention to your child. if in that six to 12 hour window after swimming they start to develop progressive cough, having difficulty breathing not acting look themselves they're reasons to be seen and evaluated. >> reporter: drowning is one of the leading causes of accident death world wide and this is a good opportunity to point out basic safety. not just for the beach and the pool, but any time a child is submerged including baby pools and bathtubs, no child should be in the water unattended even those who can swim. toddlers and preschoolers should be within arm's reach of a parent or adult even if a lifeguard is present. floatation devices are not a substitute for adult supervision. and parents should avoid distractions like cell phones
