My first job was actually as a lifeguard of sorts at one of the best waterparks in the south. It was in my hometown of Orlando and was owned by the same company that owned Universal Studios.

It was Wet N' Wild which was right down the street from the famous Universal Studios.

While at that job, there were many things I learned about water safety and swimmer tendencies.

We had a huge wave pool, a lazy river, and dozens of high-energy water rides.

Although there were plenty of things I remember "TIL THIS DAY" that were taught to us all, some things I don't think I ever learned.


Luckily this social media video is helping us all with this amazing tip that could very well save the lives of children in Alabama.

There is a Tik Tok video with over 5 million views where a woman

"This is why you do not put your children in blue bathing suits," a woman says in the viral video.

The point of the video is to warn people of the dangers of children wearing blue-colored bathing suits in bodies of water like a swimming pool.

"Look how difficult it is to see her with that bathing suit on because it is the same color as our environment."

Comments under the video were filled with people who were shocked and thankful for the information. Something so simple that we never really thinks about but could save lives.


One comment read, "I’m a former lifeguard and this is absolutely right! Any shade of blue is difficult to see, and so is any pastel light color in general."

Another said, "i teach swim lessons. proper colored suits are one of the things i require."

Who knew this little thing could save lives?

Will you be taking the advice of the woman in this Tik Tok video?
