ISR teaches babies to survive drowning

In such an era of de-sensitization, not many things can really shock me. However, when I saw this video, my jaw definitely dropped. This CANNOT be real! The gist of ISR (Infant Swim Resource) is that it teaches little kids—as young as six months old—"to rotate their bodies, stabilize their float, relax and breathe" when submerged in water. Don't ask me how they teach a six-month-old this tactic, seeing as most babies that age can't even feed themselves. Sorry, I'm a little skeptical. Is this tactic viable, or would you wait until your tot was older to embrace swim lessons?
