If Your Son Wears Shorts Like These You Need To Check Them Immediately.
On a list of dangerous situations you can put yourself in, wearing swim trunks might seem to fall incredibly far down on the list. Putting on a bathing suit generally isn't considered a risky activity, and most people do so without a second thought. This story will make you feel otherwise: Once you hear what happened to little Jack Collins, you'll never look at swim trunks the same way again.
It started off as a normal day for Jack and his mom at the hotel pool. Wanting to go for a dip, mom suited up Jack and headed out for the water. Things were going fine at first, but then Jack let out a blood-curdling scream that no parent should ever have to hear. When mom finally got to the bottom of his anguish, she was shocked to learn that his swim trunks were at the center of it all. Find out what happened, and learn what you can do to prevent it, in the story below.

"He let out the most gut-wrenching scream I've ever heard; it's a sound no mother should ever hear," Laura Collins said in an interview.
