Dry Drowning: What Parents Need to Know

From the beach to the lake to the pool, we spend a lot of time in the water in the summer in South Carolina. One topic of conversation that’s been heard recently is “dry drowning.” What is it? Can your child really drown hours after swimming? What should you do if they swallow a lot of water? The thought can be scary for parents.
