One woman is campaigning in the UK to include water safety in the national curriculum.
Becky Ramsay wants the government to ensure open-water safety, and the dangers in and around open-water, is taught in schools.
This could be a life-saver.
It would be too late for Becky's son Dylan who was just another water related fatality in 2011.
Since that time Becky has campaigned tirelessly, including petitions, but five years on young people are still dying, often attracted to water such as canals and reservoirs during the summer months.
Becky tells us:
It does not seem a controversial subject; most people are shocked that it is not taught in schools already and some people do believe that it is down to parents.
Who can disagree with Becky's reasoning?
Becky is about to launch a new petition and this time we will make sure it is well supported and the government listens and acts accordingly.
Plans for a Twitterstorm in the near future are being finalised.
Details of both will be added later.
Please support Becky and all the other families bereaved due to tragic accidents in open water.
With appropriate education the government can make a real difference.
