for Disease Control and
Prevention, about 10
people die from
unintentional drowning
every day, two of whom
are children ages 14 and
younger.
• California is one of 10
states in the nation where
drowning surpasses all
other causes of death of
children ages 14 and
younger.
• Swimming pools are 14
times more likely than a
motor vehicle to be
involved in the death of a
child age 4 and younger,
according to the Orange
County Fire Authority.

The Safer 3 Water Safety
Foundation in Tustin has
set up a three-tier system
to reduce drownings in all
types of settings.
"It's something that can be
used anywhere," said
Safer 3 founder Johnny
Johnson. "It's a universal
message that can be put
in to play at Southeast
Asia, the waterways of
Miami Beach, or the lakes
and streams of
Minnesota. It's not just
pools or beaches. It's
water."

Tyler Copeland, 15, who has been teaching
Hernandez to swim at Tustinʼs Blue Buoy Swim
School for the past two weeks, wasnʼt sure either.
“I thought they were just bringing a girl dressed up as
a princess, but instead, it was the real Princess of
Monaco,” Copeland said.
“She wasnʼt wearing a dress, but she was nice,”
Hernandez said, who was one of 15 children from
Orange County Rescue Missionʼs Village of Hope
transitional housing program who got to swim with
Princess Charlene of Monaco.
For an hour, Hernandez and the other children got
special swim lessons from Her Serene Highness and
from five-time Olympic swimmer Dara Torres, who is
an ambassador for the Princess Charlene of Monaco
Foundation.

For Holly Puckett, 6, getting to swim with a real-life
princess was a dream come true.
“She was beautiful,” Puckett said about the princess.
Holly and her mother, Jody, have been staying at the
Village of Hope for the past eight months, with Jody
recently completing phase two of the program and
beginning a job search.
“Itʼs been such a blessing to be there,” Jody said. And
with the recent partnership between Blue Buoy Swim
School and the Village of Hope, Jody was able to get
swimming lessons for Holly. In just three sessions,
Holly went from needing floaties in the pool to being
able to swim underwater, float on her back, and get to
the edge of the pool after jumping in.
“As a parent, your biggest fear with children in the
summertime is swimming,” Jody said. “So for her to
have that ability to swim is a blessing.”
Throughout the day, the princess, Torres and Irvine
native and Olympic gold medalist Jason Lezak swam
with kids, teaching them to float on their backs, tread
water and how to swim toward the edge of the pool.

“A lot of celebrities attach their names to things, but
seeing the commitment and involvement she has for
her foundation, it made it easy to say yes to join her

“She has a passion to teach swimming to underprivileged children, and we were
able to set that up for her here,” Johnson said.
Now, the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation has set up a scholarship to
bring the Village of Hope Children to the school for two weeks every year to learn
the basics of swimming and water safety. The program is expected to start this
August.
