DENISON -- Swimmers in Denison hope to help set a new record for the world's largest simultaneous swim lesson.

Waterloo Pool is an official host location for the attempt.

About 25 swimmers took a 30 minute lesson on Friday.

It's the fifth year for the event which reminds parents and children about the importance of knowing how to swim.

The world record was set last year when more than 32,000 people in 13 countries participated.

"We're teaching the younger kids how to float and how to blow bubbles and we're also teaching them how to call for help if they can't," lifeguard Ariel Hasket said.

Drowning is the second leading cause of unintended death for children ages 1-14 and the leading cause of death for children between the ages of 1-5.
