Open water swimming warnings for parents

The National Drowning Prevention Alliance recommends parents ditch the floaties and use U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — It’s been two years since Michelle Fox lost her 2-year-old daughter Logan, after a drowning accident in their backyard. Logan was being watched by a family friend, when she fell into their backyard pond.

“No kid is drown-proof. Drowning does not care, how much you love your child, drowning doesn’t care what season it is, or that you have big plans for the summer. It just does not care,” said Fox.
