The pool attendant surprised to see his father observing the child, jumped into the water to rescue the child… The adventure started there, Jean decided he was going to work on a method of teaching babies and young children the aquatic safety skills of turning onto their back to ﬂoat with their respiratory tracts out of the water, after a lot of research and practice his method teaches babies and children a conditioned reﬂex that can their lives.
