Care about life and health of the youngest citizens as well as ensuring their safety takes various forms. The basic duties of adults towards children have been described in legal acts, regulations, orders starting from decisions of different levels of authorities, through court decisions, resolutions of different institutions and ending up with detailed regulations. Each year, in the whole world, there is a huge number of accidents involving children and teenagers. Drowning is amongst one of the most frequent causes of death in the above group. Children drown in home pools, but also in life guarded water basins. Only responsibility and common sense of adults are capable of preventing many tragedies, since, based on a conducted survey, children aged 9, think of themselves as good swimmers when they can swim 25 meters without stopping.
