10 Tips to Survive Dangerous Sea Situations

1539 ratings | 70713 views
Can open water swimming be dangerous? How to stay safe in a river, lake, sea, or ocean? An innocent-looking water dam that acts as a death trap, an invisible water current that pushes you into the sea, and a powerful wave that breaks on the shore. It should all be fun in the sun, but there are some real dangers lurking in the water when you’re out swimming… If the current gets you, you’ll need to swim around it to escape. The key is to do something counterintuitive: you'll need to swim down instead of up. Swim toward the dam, then curl up and swim downward. Swim far enough down that you aren’t trapped by the current. Then while you’re still underwater, swim away from the current, which should be above you at this point. It’s only safe to come up to the surface once you’ve put enough distance between you and the current. TIMESTAMPS: Beware of sun exposure 0:37 Be very careful with inflatables 1:11 Don’t underestimate a river current 1:40 Sail safely 2:12 Beware of the risk of picking up illnesses in rivers and lakes 2:36 Know how to respond to a shark attack 3:16 Check the weather report 3:55 Be aware of the strength of the waves 4:29 Be mindful of rip currents 5:14 Don’t go near a low-head water dam 6:05 Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Just a few hours of direct sun can lead to some very unpleasant symptoms like dehydration, heat exhaustion, and even heat stroke, which is a medical emergency. - The wind can push inflatables very easily, and that’s how people have been carried away deep into the sea. - Because some rivers aren’t so deep, they might give a false sense of security. However, they can have a fast undercurrent. - The most important step is to have life jackets onboard that fit the passengers. If you can, wear a life jacket for the entire trip. - Some algae can have harmful and toxic effects if touched or if you accidentally drink water containing algae. It can lead to eye and ear irritation. - Sharks are most active at dusk, dawn, and night. They also have a powerful sense of smell, so avoid going into the water if you have an open wound. - If you’re standing on the beach, you’ll be the tallest thing for miles. Therefore, there’s a high chance that lightning could strike you. - Some waves break at sea, and they’re rolling gently by the time they reach the shore. But other waves break right at the shore — where all beach-goers tend to be. - A rip current is a powerful current of water that moves from the shore into the sea. The main issue is that you can’t spot a rip current with your eyes. - If you like to bathe in streams or small rivers, they could have a low-head dam. To give you an idea of how dangerous they are, low-head dams are also called “drowning machines.” Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/

It's kind of funny but I got trapped in a rip current and i knew what to do, I dived down and then dived up when i was far from the current so it was no longer pulling me and i swam away

My Canoeing instructor said “How’s a strong swimmer?” Almost everyone raised their hand, then he said “who could swim accros this lake and back? Only about 5 people, kept their hand up, the he said who can do it with two injured shoulders, and a leg? I was the only one who left my hand up, he looked at me and just shrugged because I’ve done it before, it was hard but I survived lol

The most Important way to stay save is to stay calm in any situation and conserve your energy, if you are in the water floating on your back uses no energy and it makes it easier to relax and examine the sitt

I was caught in numerous rips before I even knew these existed! It must've been instinct that made me swim ALONG these, parallel to the shore, until the rip dissipated.
