Firefighters to parents: Watch your kids around water

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Last year, there were a total of 75 possible drowning calls, and this year, with summer just getting under way, we're on track for even more. Earlier this week there were two calls in a single day.

Child drownings are preventable.

Tess Rafols chats with Capt Johnathan Jacobs about what parents need to do to keep their kids safe this summer.
