    The Department of Children & Families said 98 children drowned by accident in Florida in 2021-a 30 percent increase.

    ST. PETERSBURG, FL — If your child doesn’t know how to swim, swimming lessons to help keep your kid safe around water for the summer will be offered at a variety of public pools in St. Petersburg.

    According to the Florida Department of Children & Families (DCF), 98 children drowned by accident in Florida in 2021—a 30 percent increase, and the most child drownings in the last 12 years. In the drowning reports provided by DCF, many of them said that a child had wandered to a nearby pool without the parents knowing, and then drowned.
