It is the summer holidays and Jack is at a water camp. The instructor is teaching the campers life saving in water.
"So what you do is, you jump in after the drowner. Then you haul that person back in. Remember to put your index and middle finger on the person's cheek and use your thumb to move. Do side-stroke to the edge. Jack, I want you and Jill to do a little demonstration. Jill jumps in and Jack, you save her in the way I taught you, okay?"
"Okay," said Jack. What happened next was that a Jill jumped in and started drowning. The instructor waited for Jack to jump in. Ten minutes passed and Jill drowned to death.
"Jack, why didn't you save Jill?" he asked. "I can't swim."
