During the warm summer months, many enjoy cooling off in the pool or the lake. But, as Dr. Beth Ebel of the Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center (HIPRC) reminds us, don't forget to wear a life jacket. If the parent wears a life jacket, kids are 14 times more likely to wear one as well.

In the video below, she explains why it's absolutely critical to put on one and why to put the phone down while kids are playing in the water.
