Yea , because when I was 13 I was on Holiday in USA and went to typhoon lagoon florida , and one of them had to save my stupid ass. Went in up to my chest and not being a good swimmer the alarm went off the wave came and I underestimated the backwash ever so bad.

Thank heavens for the amazing skills of the life guards as it was just like that he had me back to safety with in seconds and then gave me some sound advice.

I spottet her immediately, but only because the title said it was going to happen. I thought I heard "help" earlier in the video but couldn't find anything. Being a lifeguard has to be insanely stressful... I couldn't do that for more than 5 minutes.

And who lets their kid go in a wave pool without being able to swim? I was afraid of those even when I already knew how to swim and dive.

Hey listen, any of you guys ever been in a wave pool?
Mass chaos of human flesh bouncing and banging around like some sort of weird ball of goo you get from the 25 cent machine.
I'm just sayin, I'm lucky to be alive today.

When i was 7 years old i nearly drowned myself.
It was the same story, these waves were coming in and it was very overcrouded.
Mum tells me i slipped under water and immediately the opening was closed by all these water donuts.
She couldn't reach me for about 30 seconds.
I would never allow my child to go in there...

Why do they allow water donuts in there in the first place? Never seen something like this over here.

You don't worry about the ones who are thrashing and screaming at the surface. You worry about the ones whose only priority is keeping their mouth above the waterline.

The problem with drowning is that it is depicted totally wrong in movies. Drowning is a silent death. People concentrate on not dying, getting air etc. Never - ever - let your children out of sight if a pool is nearby.

Respect to the lifeguard, that was PRO! Lifts her out and onto the flotation device all in one motion.

Crazy. Look at that flailing mass of kids. Good job lifeguard.

My parents would have never ever let me in with the big (swimming..) kids without being able to swim !!

Just saying wave pool is a picnic compared to the ocean. Anyone that has been in a rip tide will know that fear when you are swimming as hard and fast as you can back to shore and only find your self being sucked out to sea.I seen many tourists at the Gold coast Australia nearly lose their lives,many are on the missing persons list never found.Advice If you cannot swim, stay away from the water.

Or, bella, since people are going to do what they want, you could give some helpful advice. Such as, if you get caught in a rip current, don't try to swim against it back to shore, you will tire and drown. Swim parallel to the shore, perpendicular to the current, until you swim out of it, and then swim for shore.

I think that the lifeguard's reaction time was very good, especially considering the crowd in the pool. I put my hat down for this man!

Trey should spend less time teaching kids how to swim and more time teaching them how to tred water. <3
