Saw this video posted on Reddit the other day and it really intrigued me. Even after being told that a lifeguard was going to jump into the water to save a drowning individual, I still could not locate the person until the lifeguard got to her. This wasn’t an exercise either. This was a real save done at a real wave pool.

It made me realize just how hard of a task lifeguards have when monitoring a pool, let alone an ocean. It’s scary to think that one look away from the water can mean death for somebody in trouble. There’s lots of interesting tidbits of information here if you care to read into it.

Here’s two more videos at the same pool.
