Today, much of Texas feels like temperatures are in the triple digits.

Between the humidity and the blazing sun, a lot of people are finding relief in the swimming pool.

The Judah Brown Project is working to make the pool as safe as possible.

Judah Brown’s mom, Christi, understands the risks. At 3 years old, Judah was fearless in floaties and a water baby at heart. The Tomball toddler loved to swim. In September 2016, after he had slipped off his floaties to spend time with his family at a barbecue, Judah ended up sneaking back into the pool.

He drowned.

“I think I get my strength from seeing these kids not knowing what do in the water to being able to be fully capable of saving themselves,” said Christi Brown.

The Browns are using their son’s memory to drive home their mission. The Judah Brown Project, a non-profit organization, offers training for CPR and survival swim.
