CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - With more adults dying from drowning than kids those who teach swim classes said it could because of a false sense of security.

Governor McMaster has issued May to be Water Safety Awareness Month, with several Lowcountry cities also observing the month and water safety and education can lead to drowning prevention.
Several locations offer swimming lessons throughout the Lowcountry:
