MOUNT KISCO — Ten people drown every day in the U.S., according to the American Red Cross. The regional communications officer, Abigail Adams, says that there are water competency skills people should master before getting in a pool.

"If you dive in, you need to be able to come up, get your head out of water, and tread water," she says. She also stresses that it is important to swim with people around and to use the proper life vests.

Next Thursday, Willowbrook Swim and Tennis Club is holding free swimming lessons.
