4 National Council on Family Relations The villagers came up with a plan. A net was put downstream to catch those who had fallen in the river. A full-time crew was hired to watch for villagers floating downstream, pull them from the river, dry them off, & get them to ambulances.

7 National Council on Family Relations The couple decided to take matters into their own hands by… Helping to build a large fence along the rough part of the river (Prevention) Offering swimming lessons (Education)
