    Patron Saved from Near Drowning

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Today was turning out to be another day at the office (or pool in my case.) When 1 hour before closing I got the call that we dont like to heear over the two way "Code Blue" this is the call we hear when someone in the pool rquires assistance (mainly drowning)

    A patron was found floating face up on the water with no response. I quickly responded and left the office to assist my lifeguards. We pulled the patron from the water and discovered no signs of life and lips and fingers were blue. We retrieved the life saving equipment to help with CPR and Defibrillation but before we started to try an revive her we heard small quiet gasps of breaths. When we rolled her over a small amount of water came out an we heard her try for more breaths. We applied oxygen and she started to recover. The ambulance was called which then took her to hospital for observation.

    All in all a good day at work, especially knowing that if you were not around or the lifeguards were not doing their job then someone would have lost heir life today :(. Just thought I would share what I did at work today. I am very proud of mine and my staffs efforts today. A job well done. [smiley=thumbup.gif]

    good thing those that were trained were there, too many just look around and panic.
    timely reminder that doing a first aid course each year for a refresher is a damn good idea that can save a life.
    And you should be proud, great that you guys were on the ball.Well done.

    How bout someone shouting a free kilo of beans for The Goodies and his committed team as a thanks from Coffeesnobs? I know "its their job" but a hang of an important and oft-unrewarded one.
