Two Brockton boys, ages 12 and 13, drowned in a lake Saturday night where they had been skipping rocks in shallow water. One boy fell in near a steep drop off, the other drowned tried to rescue him.
It can happen in a matter of seconds. Drowning is among the leading cause of young lives being lost across the country.
Springfield Aquatic Director Joe Federico urges parents to make certain their children learn how to swim and how to encounter the dangers they face when they go into the water. Also, how to sensibly overcome those fears.See WWLP
