Underwater babies raise awareness for drowning deaths

Underwater babies raise awareness for drowning deaths

A photographer based in New York and LA and is known for capturing underwater photos of dogs and puppies, has now turned his lens on another adorable and funny underwater subject, this time of the human variety – babies.

Seth Casteel took roughly 10,000 photos of more than 750 babies for his Underwater Babies photo album.

His series aims to raise awareness of the fact that unintentional drowning is one of the leading causes of death for children ages 1-4 in the United States.

“The babies in Casteel’s photos are part of a program designed to get supervised babies accustomed to the water and to help perfect instinctive self-rescue techniques that may help them survive in the event of a real drowning scenario. The babies are taught to hold their breath, kick their feet and turn to float on their backs after being plunged underwater.”

Thee children in these photos are closely supervised and are essentially learning to swim!
