Sonika’s Bathtub Scare, Age 18 Months – July 2011

This weekend Sonika could have drowned in the bathtub, but did not thanks to the survival skills she has learned at SWIMBABES™.

Dear Kelley,

I wanted to share a swim babes rescue story with you. This weekend Sonika could have drowned in the bathtub, but did not thanks to the survival skills she has learned at SwimBabes. I had just finished bathing her and took her out of the bath tub to get dressed. Her brother and sister were still bathing. I left Sonika with my husband upstairs while I went down to get her some milk. He shut the door to the bathroom to keep her out of trouble. Unfortunately, the older kids got out of the tub and left the door to the bathroom open. I came upstairs a few minutes later to see Sylvain and Priya standing in towels, but heard splashing in the bathroom! Needless to say I RAN to the bathroom. I found Sonika frantic but floating on her back in the tub. I really think this story could have been different if she was not in SwimBabes. Needless to say we had a discussion about bathroom safety with the kids and used it as an opportunity to discuss issues like draining the tub when we get out, closing the door and making sure that one of us has Sonika in sight when the other kids are in the tub. Anyway, I wanted to thank you to you for saving Sonika’s life! (PS. The picture of her in the bathtub was taken just 30 minutes before her self rescue.)

Sincerely,
Katie
