Amazing how many people here are still alive when pulled from the water yet die shortly afterwards. In other countries they seem to be much better equipped to do whatever necessary to produce a speedy recovery.

"Amazing how many people here are still alive when pulled from the water yet die shortly afterwards".

 

That has happened previously and involved so many people that it is "amazing"?    When was the last incident of that type?

 

By the way, this lady hasn't died.

So if they had so called "lifeguards" on patrol, why in hell's name was it a tourist who found her?

likely lifeguards in other countries are more alert and notice troubled swimmers sooner and resuscitate sooner thus higher % survive

That's what you get when you use rice farmers as lifeguards.

its cooling down now so maybe a bit chilli for them to enter the water.its a pathetic effort at trying to keep the beaches safe.

Some times a third party is closer to an incident, was she in the patrolled area? How many "trained" lifeguards are on duty?

So what is the best chosen profession for trained lifeguards?? Brain surgeons? aircraft mechanics?

I wouldnt really know but it seems like they need to look at their recruiting tactics as the current way doesn't seem to be working.

at the moment all they seem to be is body recovery from the reports I read on here.

would you trust you life in their hands because I know I wouldn't.

used to live in hawaii where the lifeguards were excellent. forward thinking also. at surf breaks requiring a long distance paddle they'd come around on jet skis to see if anyone was too exhausted and needed a quick tow to shore.

Mr Gebreegziabher said that he saw Ms Bahni floating face down in the water at around 6:45am. He brought her ashore and called lifeguards for help
