A Scary Thing
We were at the base pool yesterday when a scary thing happened. I heard the life guard blow the whistle, and as I looked up, I watched him jump in to save someone. A man in his 20s was being pulled out of the deep end of the pool--it took several people to get him out. Everyone was stunned--and curious. The staff of the pool all sprang into action--911 was called--and the base fire and police came on the scene. The man became conscious pretty quickly, but was coughing up blood. I immediately went to the twins to get them out of the water, and soon after everyone was asked to get out of the pool, and we were asked to go outside the facility while the EMT's transported him to the ambulance outside. I pray that he is doing well now--it is awful to think how terrible that could have turned out. It makes you really think about how quickly life can change. An instant. The weird thing about this is that the last time I was at the pool, I was thinking how I had been coming to this pool for 8 years and had never seen the lifeguards have to save anyone--and then this happens--the very next time I'm at the pool. Isn't is freaky how those things happen sometimes?

That is scary! I've never had anything like that happen, thank goodness. It would scare me to death.
