New drowning detection technology

Rick Kauffman, Founder of The Kels Group posted

His podcaste episode includes a LIVE DEMO that is taking place January 6, 2019.

I will be present at this demonstration as I have a personal interest in this technology. I believe that it will be a game changer and potentially save 1,000’s of lives that otherwise these people could become victims of drowning or non-fatal drownings

In this episode I will give you a way to follow my status updates so if you would like to learn more as I will be sharing with you first hand what we are going to learn in real time just as if you would be there yourself.

If you would have any question that you would like me to ask let me know and if time would allow I will ask them and broadcast the answers on next week podcast.

A flashback to a swim-class drill

In the split second before Mareddy asked her son to help, she remembered a drill from his swim class.
“I saw him go to the bottom of the pool and collect rings and come up. That just flashed in my mind,” she said. “If he can go get three things while controlling his breath …”

The fifth-grader swam down, grabbed the man’s wrist and pulled him to the surface.
“Advaik understood the situation,” his mother said. “There was an emergency.”

Question of the day

Question:

If you see someone being attacked by a shark while you are in the vicinity, would you try to help the person or get out of the water?

Answer:

Get out of the water first, then attempt to help the person by throwing a flotation device or rope or something. Creating two victims that need rescuing is no help to anyone especially the first responder rescuers. The first rule of professional rescuers like Firefighters and EMS is “scene safety.” If you your self become another victim you’re doing no help at all especially to the original victim.
