TOLEDO, Ohio — Drowning can happen in an instant, in less than 20 seconds to be exact, according to swim safety nonprofit Stop Drowning Now. It’s unlike what you see in the movies. Drowning is usually silent and almost invisible.
This is why the organization Because of Logan is raising funds and awareness year-round to teach others about the dangers for one to four years old.
The local nonprofit provides scholarships to pay swim survival lessons and has given out over 80 scholarships in 2023 and helped more than 130 families across 18 states including Canada, since December 2021.
