Highway Patrol Gives Safety Tips

The Missouri State Highway Patrol is encouraging Missourians to swim safe this summer.

The Patrol has been called to investigate 28 drowning incidents so far this year. Troopers say Missouri’s lakes and rivers can include currents, drop-offs and floating debris that can make swimming more challenging.

They continue by saying to never overestimate your swimming ability and to either have a life jacket on or within reach.
