Wisconsin conference highlights importance of water safety education
One man says water safety education in schools could help stop what he calls a drowning epidemic in the Midwest. "I grew up swimming in Lake Michigan," said Dave Benjamin, executive director of Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project. "I was a strong swimmer." Benjamin never expected to be talking about water safety at the State of Lake Michigan Conference Wednesday afternoon, but a drowning accident in 2010 completely changed his life.
