People are drowning in our disused quarries and lakes and this is why!

Our people are drowning because they are going to places like disused quarries, lakes, and open water areas to try and cool themselves down.

The temperatures are higher than normal for the time of year and people are looking for ways to cool down, most of us just keep out of the heat during the hottest part of the day.

We have all seen in the media recently a spate of drownings and it really saddens me that people are losing their lives by swimming in places like disused quarries, lakes or rivers, in the urge to cool down and they probably think it won’t happen to them and sadly it can happen to anyone even the most experienced swimmer because ‘Cold Water Shock’ can kill and so often does.
