Those inflatable swans are the most popular float I've ever seen! But they can be impossible to control. Just ask this mother from Florida.
Tara Myers and her son had a terrifying experience recently on an inflatable swan. They were floating happily, near the shore, when they suddenly found themselves swept up in a strong rip current. Tara and her son were pulled out to sea, miles from safety.
"It was pretty much pure panic," Myers said in an interview. "I was still on the swan float, but kicking and paddling trying to fight the current to get us back to where I could get off the raft.”
The two were rescued and brought back to shore.
