Water Safety New Zealand's under-fives water safety ambassador Ameliaranne Ekenasio features in a new campaign of three videos to emphasise the message that constant supervision saves lives of our tamariki.
The videos are designed to remind parents and guardians that accidents can happen in seconds and to encourage people to hop in the water and have fun with their kids when they're at the pool.
