Tulsa County Lifeguard is an 'Everyday Hero'
Chandler Pool lifeguard Lindsey Schwager is given an Everyday Hero Award from EMSA. On June 14th she pulled Matthew Pete from the pool. He was drowning, and EMSA representatives say her quick action saved the 11-year-old’s life.
Statistics show that drowning is the number two cause of accidental death, just behind vehicle crashes, of children ages 15 and under, and that about half of these deaths occur within 25 yards of a parent or other adult.
