This is the alarming moment a lifeguard was forced to jump into a South Carolina wave-pool to rescue a three-year-old girl who was beginning to drown[1]. Now where where the parents?

Read on folks…


Shocking footage shows the lifeguard surveying the pool, which is packed full of adults and children enjoying the water and floating around in rubber rings.

The wave function on the pool is switched on and people begin to enjoy jumping and riding the waves.

The unnamed lifeguard said: ‘I had to walk this 3 year old girl around until I could find her family.
‘They had no idea she was missing.

‘I have been doing this for 18 years and I am still amazed by the lack of supervision some kids get around the water.’

Several online commentators have condemned the parents for neglecting the child. One said: ‘Anyone who lets a 3 year old go into a wave pool by themselves without any life jacket on should be criminally prosecuted for neglect.’

I’m usually not one to criticize parents for their parenting abilities, or lack thereof…but really? A 3-year old by herself in a pool with no life jacket? Shame on you parents. Be more vigilant. Like this awesome lifeguard.
