You can't let kids swim unattended, even if they can swim. It is very important to make sure that an adult in charge...
The majority of recommendations for emergency aid involve the following key requirement: the rescuer must first ensure their own safety. From this point of view the rescuing of a drowning person is one of the riskiest actions for someone who is trying to be a rescuer. Those who aren’t prepared physically and have no special skills in saving people from the water can help only in shallow waters, in a children's pool, or in a situation where a small child is drowning, i.e. when in order to rescue you only need to put out a hand, but don’t need to float on the water and swim.
No book will prepare you physically or teach techniques for rescuing drowning people.
If you are not confident about your own abilities, if you are out of your depths — scream, shout for help, but don’t increase the number of victims with your helping enthusiasm!
If you, however, decided to help, try to do it without getting into the water, by using improvised (ropes, sticks, rubber rings, etc.) and floating (lifeboats, motor boats, etc.) means.
When you provide emergency aid it makes absolutely no difference:
Emergency assistance should be provided to all the drowned until professional rescuers arrive.
And once again NOTE!
Your actions will be always the same!
Your primary task is to remove the victim from the water ASAP.
If the child shows no signs of life:
Resuscitation procedure consists of three successive stages:
If the child shows no signs of life, don’t waste your time on attempts to remove the water from their lungs:
Neither you (by reading) nor I (by writing) made any mistakes: don’t waste time on attempts to remove the water from the lungs!
There is either none or little water in the lungs (it has been absorbed into the bloodstream), or it is impossible to be removed by any of the means described above. The small amount of water you are able to extract will be removed in the course of compressions in the process of resuscitation.
If the victim shows: consciousness /breathing/coughing/movement of limbs/heaves or if any of the above conditions appeared during the time of your emergency assistance:
No matter how well, in your opinion the child's condition is, they should in any case be taken to a hospital for medical examination. Sharp deterioration after any drowning is the rule rather than the exception!
