     Lifeguards and swimming students at the Henderson Multigenerational Center took
part in the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson on Tuesday. The event was designed to break
a Guinness World Record for the biggest swimming lesson and spread awareness of the role
that learning to swim can play in saving a child’s life. More than 10,000 children across four
continents were expected to participate in the event. The city of Henderson participated at
seven swimming pools located throughout the city.
     “We know that if a child has not learned to swim by the time they enter third grade, they
probably never will,” said Brady Dehn, Henderson Aquatics Manager. “Unfortunately, drowning
is the second-leading cause of unintended injury-related death of children ages 14 and under.
That’s why we have chosen to be part of a global event like the World’s Largest Swimming
Lesson. It’s a positive way to bring attention to the importance of teaching children how to
swim, something we take very seriously.”
