If we can keep a water hose around waterways it could become a breathing apparatus in helping a drowning person get air and to rescue them from the water. An ordinary garden hose is good if one end is affixed to an object out of the water and the other end put in the water with rescuer to help victim breathe. Lifejackets should be worn by all kids and adults when swimming. Never swim alone. Always stay safe.
