Shallow Water Blackout

In this PSA, Bob Bowman, CEO/Head Coach of North Baltimore Aquatic Club, discusses the topic of Shallow Water Blackout.

Even experienced athletes can become a victim of this tragic phenomenon where oxygen is deprived from a swimmer's system during practice which can lead to drowning.

This PSA can help to prepare even highly experienced coaches to provide a safer environment for their athletes.

This happened to KAP7 Co-Founder, Wolf Wigo (Three-time Olympian and World Champion), arguably one of the strongest people in the water on a whole! He was lucky that his father recognized what was happening and revived him in time. He will share his story soon.

Be safe!
