Teen rescues 4-year-old on first day as a lifeguard

(WCMH)

LAKEWOOD, Ohio (AP) – An Ohio teen lifeguard has rescued a 4-year-old boy – the first day on the job.

Jack Viglianco says he was 20 minutes into his shift at a Lakewood swimming pool Thursday when he heard the boy calling for help. The 15-year-old sprang into action, jumping into the water and helping the child to safety.

Viglianco says his heart was racing during the rescue, but says being a lifeguard is a dream come true.

The Lakewood Aquatics manager says there were 42 rescues last summer between the pools at Lakewood and Madison Park. All the victims were saved.
