Beware of water accidents when going into the river

2022/04/28 Thursday Announcements, Education


Rivers are usually a calm place that brings a lot of fun to visitors.  However, they can turn into a scary place at times.  A slight carelessness or lack of attention can lead to a serious accident.  Remember that beside the fun you must also be aware of the dangers so that you could protect yourself from accidents.

Rules when going into the river

  • If it rained a lot the day before, the water level in the river rises, increasing the danger of accidents. Do not approach the river.
  • Wear the life jacket correctly when fishing.
  • Children, in particular, when playing in the water, are inattentive and end up going into deep or dangerous parts of the river. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, and both adults and children must be careful.
  • Be aware of the weather and river flow, even when playing in the water.
  • If you see a child playing in a dangerous part of the river, get their attention and instruct them to go to a safer place.

Get out of the river immediately in the following cases (signs of sudden water level rise)

  • If you see dark clouds in the sky moving in the direction where the water flows
  • If you see leaves, wood or garbage floating in the water
  • If it starts to rain
  • If you hear thunder

If it’s raining, don’t seek shelter under bridges.

Rivers are more dangerous than the sea for the following reasons.  Play safely in rivers once you fully understand the dangers.

  1. River water has less salt than sea water and contains more air, making it difficult for people to float on the surface.
  2. Rivers have a determined flow of water and more atmospheric pressure, so it’s easier to lose your balance even in the shallow parts.
  3. Unlike in beaches, there are few rivers with lifeguards or rescuers.
