In a large wave pool with some 50 or so children and adults, it is difficult to spot someone in trouble as everyone is surely flailing around as they try to have fun. So, a lifeguard’s job is truly a difficult one – and you could only imagine what could possibly happen if there were no lifeguards around.
In a video posted by Lifeguard Rescue that has quickly gone viral, plenty of people could be seen enjoying the wave pool. A few seconds into the clip, the lifeguard blows her whistle and jumps into the water. A few more seconds later and she could be seen saving a kid – but did you notice the moment the child flipped over and began struggling in the water?
Well, I actually didn’t! I had to rewind the clip several times before I finally found the exact moment the child was in trouble. As you can see in the clip, the moment the child fell, the lifeguard blew her whistle and jumped into the water. What an amazing response time! It would surely be great to be swimming in pool with such an eagle-eyed lifeguard on duty.
