Free Summer Water Safety Workshop

This morning's cool weather may not be an indication, but summer is right around the corner. From the pool to the river, plenty of people will hit the water whether or not they know all the safety rules.

Splash in the Boro water park, Georgia Southern University and the American Red Cross will team up to host a free water safety workshop this Saturday.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, six people die each day in water- or swimming-related accidents.

"We'll cover things like wearing personal flotation devices to being able to help somebody out of the water to safety around a pool," said the water park's Steve Brown. 

The workshop is at Splash in the Boro on Highway 24. It will be held Saturday from 1pm to 5pm and is free. Everyone is invited.
