Respect the Water

More loss of life in water is inland rather than by the coast. In 2019, 98 people lost their life at sea compared to 222 inland. Cold water shock is the main cause of drowing as the temperature of water in rivers runs bewteen 13 and 15 degrees. If you fall into cold water you need to fight your instincts and float.
