  1. That is great news!!

    Just a few water safety tips t keep you and your family safe this summer;
    -Always allow 30 minutes after eating to let your meal properly digest and avoid the risk of developing a cramp.
    -Keep a life preserver or throw rope near the pool. A struggling swimmer can also put a rescuer in danger. The throw rope/ life preserver can provide the swimmer with a flotation device, while pulling the swimmer to safety.
    -For in-ground pools with deep ends, alway have a safety rope dividing the deep end from the shallow end.
    – As another commenter above stated, learn CPR.
    For more safety tips that can help you and your loved ones enjoy the use of pools safely, please visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. They provide many great learning tools! Be safe, Enjoy the Summer!

  2. Your headline is frighteningly inaccurate. He did not drown. drowning implies death. This is called a near-drowning. My heart almost dropped when I read the headline.

  3. The Young Lifeguard saved his life by pulling him out, its possible Hatzalah assisted afterwards but give credit to the Lifeguard!

    =============================================
    your description of your heart almost dropping implies that it does happen when one get scared. please change it to be a little more realistic as my liver nearly popped out when i read your comment

  5. The young lifeguard saved a man’s life!!
    We NEED to make sure that there is ALWAYS a lifeguard by a pool no matter who is in there.

    Sometimes adults get together and go swimming without a lifegaurd.
    We MUST take a lesson from this!!

  6. THE LIFE GUARD IS A HERO, HOWEVER , LIFEGUARDS ARE THERE TO PREVENT THIS TYPE OF THING. MAKE SURE YOUR LIFEGUARDS ARE QUALIFIED AND MAINTAIN CONTROL OF THE POOL SETTING. THEN ALL THIS CAN BE AVOIDED. AND TO YOU PEOPLE WHO DO NOT CONFORM TO THE RULE OF THE POOL. SHAME ON YOU

  7. I know the lifeguard personall. He is a caring and talented lifeguard. He is the TRUE HERO of this story. Every pool should have a devoted lifeguard like him! May Hashem repay him with every blessing!
