Uprise of drowning cases in Singapore

There have been an increase in the number of drowning cases in Singapore. Drowning cases that happen in the sea, the canal and even at the reservoir. Some are good swimmers, some are non swimmers.

Whenever Teacher Jerry see these kind of news appearing on the papers or the television... I will feel very sad... Cause I once lost a very very good and close friend of mine to drowning. This friend of mine was a very good swimmer and he was also a lifeguard. He was a friend whom I respected and look up to. But his time with us was short.

My advice to everyone. Don't swim alone especially in the open seas. Even if you are very confident, DO NOT SWIM ALONE. And if you think you can't go on anymore, pls stop and float on ur back and find the nearest point where you can float and rest. Don't "hao lian".

Till then... Treasure your life. Life is vulnerable.
