There’s a Kid Drowning In This Pool… Can You Spot Him Before The Lifeguard Does?

Lifeguards are incredibly important. Especially at swimming pools, be they indoors our out. Recent estimates claim that over 60% of all children that die from drowning, drown in pools. Another shocking statistic says that between the years 2005 and 2009, there were an average of 3,500 unintentional non-boating related drownings each year. 20% of those who died were aged 14 or younger.

So it’s not an easy job, being a lifeguard. It’s easy to get distracted in such a role too. It’s relatively low pay and many workers are either quite young or working on a casual basis. But we think they do an amazing job.

Watch the video below and – bearing in mind this could be a few hours into a shift, see if you can spot the child in trouble before the lifeguard does…
