'Slide Into Safety' teaches student about summer safety

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Students in La Crosse are learning about how to be safe during the summer.

Wednesday's 'Slide Into Safety' event taught kids ways to be safe while staying active this summer.

Third grade students from around the area learned about things like boating safety and the importance of wearing helmets.

Organizers say kids can be helpful in preventing injuries.

"And they do actually learn a lot when they are here, but I think even if they take away one thing that can prevent them from getting an injury this summer, that is really what we want," said Megan Anderson, Coordinator of the Coulee Region Safe Kids.

Nearly half of all injuries among children occur during the summer months.
