Major Owens Community Center hosts free swim lessons for children

Some Brooklyn children took part in free swimming lessons Sunday at Major Owens Community Center.
The pool lanes were filled with children receiving one-on-one instruction on how to keep their heads above the water.
The event was part of the Brooklyn Swims outreach program to teach children water safety tips.
This is the first time the event partnered with, a nonprofit organization that works with water safety education for underserved communities.
The Major Owens Community Pool is open for swim lessons year-round.
