Lifeguards help over 700 lost children

During the month of July, the lifeguards reunited 714 lost children with their parents or supervisors. Thanks to the wristbands that most children wore, the lifeguards were able to help quickly. The wristbands are distributed freely by IKWV (Intercommunal for Coastal Lifeguard Services in West-Flanders) and you can get them at tourism offices, first aid posts or newspaper shops along the coast.
