Seven-month-old Ejijah Flack floats back to the surface of the pool after being pushed underwater by his mother and swim instructor Melissa Flack Saturday, February 2, 2013 at the Mermaid Cove Swim School. Starting out in the bathtub, Elijah has been learning to love the water almost since birth. He can now float by himself and handle being underwater in the pool.
