DLRG President Ute Vogt: “Just as boys and girls learn to read, write and do arithmetic, they also have to learn to swim”.

Only 57 percent of children swim safely, according to a Forsa survey for the German Life Saving Society (DLRG) published on Tuesday. In 2017, the proportion of non-swimmers of primary school age was ten percent.

As the survey further shows, another 23 percent of the children are unsafe swimmers according to their parents. Only 57 percent swim safely, which is about as many as five years ago.
