Warning to parents: Lifeguard your kids
WFAA - Dozens of Texas children have died from drowning in pools, lakes or ponds this year. "Most of the parents would tell you, it’s just a second, drowning is very silent," says Sharon Evans, trauma injury prevention coordinator at Cook Children's Hospital in Fort Worth.
"Even a child that might survive, sometimes can have deficits," she says.
According to information from Cook Children's, this month so far, 12 children were brought here for drowning. One didn't survive.
