Sister of drowning victim now focuses on prevention

Pamplin Media Group - 08-09


During Drowning Impact Awareness Month, Mikaela Bjorn shares the devastating impacts of losing her sister in a drowning accident and offers prevention strategies. Each summer, we hear dreadful stories of drowning deaths. Early in June, Country star Granger Smith's 3-year-old son tragically drowned at the family's home pool. But for the Bjorn family and possibly the whole Colton community, none have been more impactful than the loss of 4-year-old Kirsten Bjorn as the result of a drowning accident at preschool in April last year.
