How One Responsible Leader's Calling Has Already Saved almost 800 Infants from Drowning: My Interview with Dr. Harvey Barnett, Founder of Infant Swim Resource.

The life story of a calling to responsible leadership: Harvey Barnett was horrified as a teenager (and a lifeguard) by senseless infant drownings he witnessed. Young Harvey began a continuing 44-year quest to teach infants how to save themselves when they fall into the backyard pool -- and to teach parents to take responsibility to prevent infant drowning, the #1 cause of accidental death among infants.

To date, 178,000 infants have been trained. There are 780 documented cases of "self rescue" and zero drownings among these students.
