Audio: Andre gives an insight into the holiday drowning spike

Andre spoke with Natalie Peters on 2GB about the recent spate of drownings, why we might be seeing this spike and things we can work on to reverse the drowning toll.

There have been 22 drowning deaths in NSW over the holiday period, more than double the road toll in the same period.

Why are we seeing so many people drown, who are they, where are they drowning and what should we be doing to stop these preventable deaths?

Andre Slade, owner of ocean swim and safety school OceanFit, gives his thoughts to Natalie Peters on radio station 2GB.
