Teen Lifeguard Saves Little Boy 20 Minutes Into His Very First Shift

on . Posted in Parents

Teenage lifeguard Jack Viglianco had barely gotten his bearings in his new job when he sprang into action to save a little boy from drowning.

The 15-year-old was just 20 minutes into his first shift at the Charles A. Foster pool in Lakewood, Ohio, on Thursday when he spotted a 4-year-old “bobbing up and down” in the water and yelling for help.

“I realized, ‘Oh shoot! I have to go in and save this kid,’” said Viglianco, who’d only completed his orientation the previous day.

My training kicked in and I jumped into the water,” he told WKYC-TV. “I grabbed him and pulled him out of the water and probably saved his life.”
