    ALSO TURN DANGEROUS.FOR SOME
    PERSPECTIVE TAKE A LOOK AT
    THIS.DROWNING IS THE SECOND
    MOST COMMON CAUSE OF DEATH FOR
    KIDS FROM AGE ONE TO 14.THAT'S
    ACCORDING TO THE CENTERS FOR
    DISEASE CONTROL.THREE KIDS DIE
    EVERY DAY AS A RESULT OF
    DROWNING.BUT IT'S NOT JUST
    CHILDREN..YOUNG ADULTS FROM
    AGE 15 TO 24 ARE ALSO AT A
    HIGH RISK OF DROWNING.THE CITY

    LEARNING TO SWIM DOESN'T
    HAPPEN ALL AT ONCE.TANIA
    MIRANDA'S DAUGHTER ZOE WASN'T
    THRILLED ABOUT IT AT FIRST.
    TANIA MIRANDA: "AT THE
    BEGINNING SHE WAS SCREAMING
    AND CRYING AND EVERYTHING, BUT
    NOW SHE'S FINE."THE
    THREE-ALMOST-FOUR YEAR OLD
    TAKES LESSONS AT WATERLOO
    SWIMMING IN NORTHWEST AUSTIN.
    KIDS HERE ARE LEARNING A SKILL
    THAT COULD SAVE THEIR LIVES.
    TANIA MIRANDA: "WE NEVER KNOW
    WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN, SO
    IT'S MORE LIKE A PREVENTIVE
    THING."JODI JAY: "YOU DON'T
    HAVE TO BE AN EXCELLENT
    SWIMMER TO HELP YOURSELF IN
    THE WATER."THAT'S WHY THE CITY
    STARTS LESSONS AT SIX MONTHS
    OLD.YOUR KIDS WON'T LEARN TO
    SWIM AT THAT AGE.. BUT IT'LL
    HELP WHEN THEY'RE READY.JODI
    JAY: "WHAT WE'RE DOING WHEN
    WE'RE TEACHING YOUNGER KIDS
    SWIM LESSONS, WE'RE ACTUALLY
    TEACHING THEM HOW TO BE
    COMFORTABLE IN THE WATER."
    "READY, BIG BREATH."LESSONS
    START AT 6 MONTHS HERE AT
    WATERLOO, TOO.TANIA MIRANDA:
    "OH, OKAY.INSTRUCTOR: YEAH,
    SHE'S DOING REALLY GOOD. WE

    THEN WE'RE GOING TO BE GOOD TO
    GRADUATE."TANIA MIRANDA:
    "THAT'S GOOD NEWS."ZOE'S READY
    FOR SUMMER.TANIA MIRANDA: "I
    THINK SHE'S MORE CONFIDENT."
