A letter to all students

Dear international students:


At present, it has gradually turned warmer and entered the flood season, which is the highest period of all the water-related security accidents. Based on the spirit of "people-oriented", in order to do a good job of safety education, warn students of improving safety awareness and prevent drowning events, CTGU expects that all students can strengthen the awareness of drowning risk and the capacity of identifying dangerous situations, act of rescue and emergency escape .

1. Being fully aware of the dangers of drowning accidents. You are the hope to your family, and also the future to your motherland. Drowning accidents will cause an irreparable loss to families, which will have a serious psychological effect on students. Everyone must be fully aware of the fact, and then choose the correct way to take exercises according to their own ability so as to avoid the drowning accidents.

2. Gaining the drowning-prevent skills, and improving the self-protect and self-help abilities. If interested, you can find a professional coach at the swimming pool to get the skills and abilities. Do not go swimming without authorization; do not go swimming or play in the water with others; do not go swimming in the waters without safety facilities and rescue personnel; do not go swimming in the unfamiliar waters; do not get into waters to rescue if anyone is a landlubber!

3. Don’t panic when you are encounter drowning accidents; if you have the ability to rescue, you can carry out the rescue; if you see the drowned man, you should immediately shout loudly for help. Not advocating the juveniles getting into waters to rescue; you should ensure your own safety when you rescue someone from shore or on board so as not to be towed into the water. If you see that students play or swim in the water, please promptly give a piece of advice in manners to reduce the drowning accidents.

4. Common rescue methods of the drowning accidents:

1. Dialing 119 to professionals for help, and not getting into waters to rescue without any equipment.

If you are not trained with the professional rescue methods, please don't randomly get into waters to save anybody. Remember that: Swimming like a duck does not mean that you have the capacity of saving people who fall into water. On the shore you should not be directly into the water, the best rescue is to cast life buoy with ropes or long poles and so on, you can depend on the local materials, such as trees, tree branches, wood and purified-water bottles which also can be used to save people.

2. Rescue efforts should start from the drowning's backside so that the head of the drowning can emerge from water.

If the drowning person is unconscious, you should instantly put the drowning person lying on your back, setting head to one side, removing silt weeds, vomits in nose and mouth. If the drowning person is breathing slightly or breathless, you should promptly do his or her favors with the artificial respiration. You should put the drowning in the supine position, on one hand holding onto the nostrils of the drowning, on the other hand opening the mouth of the drowning, and you take a deep breath and quickly do the mouth-to-mouth blowing, repeatedly blowing until bringing his or her breath back.

3. After falling into the water, immediately holding the breath, kicking off the shoes, and then relaxing the bodies.

Don't struggle aimlessly with hands and feet, if no doing like that, the drowning can reduce the winding of weeds and save the physical strength. The drowning should keep back as much as possible and make his or her head back so that the nose can be above the water to breathe, and as far as possible breathe in through the mouth and  exhale more through the nose, in case of choke water. Do not try to emerge the entire head out of the water, because it will be a fatal mistake.
