DAYTON — Two Dayton recreation centers hosted the 2018 World's Largest Swimming Lesson this morning.
The Greater Dayton and Lohrey Recreation Centers taught basic water safety reminding everyone that learning to swim helps prevent drowning. More than 41,000 swimmers in 27 countries on six continents participated in 2017.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning remains the leading cause of injury related death for children ages one to four, and the second leading cause for children under 14. Internationally, the World Health Organization estimates drowning is one of the top five causes of death for children ages one to 14 in 48 of the 85 countries it monitors.
"The earlier you introduce kids to the water, the greater chance of survival," said Ian Morgan, the Head Life Saving Instructor for the City of Dayton. "When you enter a kid into water and teach them swim lesson one through four, you reduce the risk of drowning by 88 percent."
In a 2014 survey completed by the American Red Cross, results indicated 54 percent of Americans either can't swim or don't have all of the basic swimming skills.
Other results show parents do not recognize that supervision is key.

DAYTON — A 25-year-old man arrested Wednesday in a raid on a home in the 1700 block of Xenia Avenue in Dayton is wanted in the killing of a motel clerk in a Seattle suburb.
Dayevion Royalston was apprehended on a parole violation and a detainer from the King County Sheriff's Office.
King County sheriff's detectives will travel here for an extradition hearing to return Royalston to SeaTac, an inner-ring suburb of Seattle.

Several members of the Dayton Police Department, FBI, Safe Streets Task Force and the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office descended on the home, with weapons drawn, late Wednesday afternoon.
Sheriff Phil Plummer said King County sheriff's officials called his office to relay information that the suspect had associates in Dayton. That information pointed local authorities to a woman living at the Xenia Avenue address, Plummer said.
Royalston is wanted in the shooting death of a motel clerk in the city of SeaTac early on June 16.
According to The Seattle Times and other news reports in that area, a shuttle driver pulled up to the America's Best Value, south of the Sea-Tac Airport, and found the 40-year-old clerk on the floor and bleeding about 11:15 p.m.
