Cullen Jones almost drowned as a kid


Alright, I’ve learned that he had a bad experience as a kid, but didn’t know that it was so bad that he had to be resuscitated. Read, and let’s support his efforts to encourage more people to learn how to swim.

At an amusement park in Pennsylvania when he was 5, Jones almost lost his life when an inner tube he was riding on flipped over.

“I was completely supervised,” said Jones, who spoke with hundreds of youth in Shreveport in 2010 and shared his story. “My parents were right there watching me and the lifeguards were watching me and I almost drowned. I had to be completely resuscitated.”
