Simple swimming techniques can prevent tragedy



As of Thursday, there are no more water activities at the FGCU lake until further notice after this student drowned Wednesday night.

It was a tragic ending for Joel Johnson.

Infant swimming resource instructor Kathy Cole says this could have been avoided if Johnson knew the life saving techniques she teachers her students.

“Staying calm cool and collected is key. It does not matter if you are in 10,000 feet in the ocean or in a 10-foot deep pool,” she said.
