#1 A quesdtion for you......

and all the rest who think they have trhe right answer for each case:

Celina, do you know how to swim?

I visit frequently a town in Fujian that is right by the sea and suprisingly most of the people I have asked can't swim.

If you couldn't, would you risk your life?

It turnedn out that in Guangzhou, an ex-army chinese service man drowned tryng to save another woman who fell in the river.....Why you never mentioned that as an example on how "kindhearted" teh chinese are?

And teaching someone to swim is getting harder and harder with his or her Age.
(similar to teaching Adults how to sue a Bicycle)
Have you ever tried?
It takes a lot of hard time to get an average Chinese Adult to manage swimming himself somewhat safely in a pool.
Not to talk about himself getting to a level experienced and trained enough to tow someone ashore.

Plus, foreigners often enough either unaware or, over distress of someone, forgetting about the risks of helping someone in need in China.

# 9 that's why......

I mentioned in my post that even a young trained man, he was 31, failed not only to save teh person he was trying to help but even lost his own life in the action. n

Imagine for someone who hardly knows how to float!

And that's why, as a Lifeguard myself, I often use quite of my spare time in China teaching people swimming.
While being at swimming anyway, why not do something good?

started back in School teaching swimming to a Friend together with a Spaniard who had a unique teaching skill,
that guy could teach people pretty much anything, without even needing to have any understanding and idea of it himself.
In this case a natural talent though, I wouldn't recommand anyone else to do that.

Now back on topic, It would surely be good to teach swimming skills, but aside from lack of capable teachers for general curriculum, there's the lack of swimming pools in this developement stage, and unlike other countries in the past or at present in this developement stage, the natural waters are mostly just not a very viable option. And then there's the parents Attitudes to any courses that won't be directly helpful to the Child's National University Entrance Exam.

In the UK I observed life saving equipment hanging every few meters, at least within London, at Shores, can't do that everywhere either.

Anyone who ever did or tried teaching swimming to an adult wont wonder about this specific incident, having in mind how rare a skill swimming itself, not even to tow somone else is in China.

Uruguayan Maria Fernanda saved a drowning woman in the West Lake of Hangzhou on Oct 13, while most of the Chinese just watched and took pictures.
