In Depth: Inside survival swim lessons


At four years old, Eva Dunham is like a little fish in the water. Swimming laps, doing somersaults and not wanting pool time to end.

“I’m very proud of her, she’s worked hard,” said her mom

Jessica Dunham knows her little girl got a second chance after a near tragedy at the family pool two years ago. One second she could see Eva on the back porch. And the next?

“I found her face down floating in our family pool. By the time I got to her she was completely lifeless, blue,” Jessica said.
