Though it might appear to be easy, being a lifeguard must be one of the most stressful jobs.
While much of the job probably looks relaxing, lifeguards hold people’s lives in their hands and are responsible for everything that happens in their pool.
Some lifeguards go years without ever having to perform a rescue, but they must always remain alert and ready just in case. When I saw these incredible images and this shocking video of a little boy drowning in a crowded pool, I knew that lifeguards truly are heroes.
This camera caught footage of a pool overcrowded with children and inner tubes. When one little boy fell out of his tube and began to struggle, I had a hard time even spotting it. But this hero lifeguard sprang into action.
The Daily Mail found video of this amazing rescue that proves just how important having a responsible lifeguard on duty can be. This young woman is an incredible hero!

When this lifeguard blew her whistle and leapt into this crowded pool, it was nearly impossible to see who exactly was struggling in the water.
At this pool — the location of which is unknown, but it is believed to be in the U.S. — a small child slipped off of his inner tube and fell into the water.
The child was only able to keep his head above water briefly, and the swimmers around him did not seem to notice his struggling.
This lifeguard seemed to be the only one who spotted the struggling boy, who could not keep his head above water as his arms flailed wildly.
Within 10 seconds, the lifeguard had the boy in her arms, much to the surprise of the other swimmers.
Her amazing reflexes and keen eye certainly saved the day. She worked her way out of the pool carrying the young boy in order to make sure he was okay.
Once they reached the side of the pool, it became clear that the young boy was miraculously fine and was able to climb out of the pool on his own.
While the average person may have missed the young child struggling to stay above water, this heroic rescuer proved the importance of dedicated, well-trained lifeguards to keeping the public safe. Certainly the young boy is all too aware of how fortunate he truly is to have been under her watchful eye!
