Teen lifeguards save swimmer in Lawrenceburg

Three teenagers saved an unconscious 10-year-old at city pool

(LAWRENCEBURG, Ind.) -- A young swimmer was saved by three teenage lifeguards at the Pat O’Neill Memorial Pool in Lawrenceburg earlier this month.


A 10-year-old jumped off the diving board in the deep end of the pool, however, was not able to swim, according to pool manager DeeDee Abbott.


Lifeguards Ivy Hinkle and Isabelle Davis noticed the child struggling in the water and immediately sprung into action.


The child was unconscious when Hinkle and Davis got to her. They were able to pull the victim to the edge of the pool.


That's when a third lifeguard, Molly Steuer, helped by pulling the child out of the water.


The lifeguards, along with some good Samaritans, checked the child's pulse, turned the child over to ensure she wouldn't choke on water, and also called 9-1-1.


By the time first responders arrived, the child had regained consciousness. The 10-year-old survived the near-drowning and is expected to make a full recovery.


Steuer said the tense situation is something she will never forget.


"We were all so prepared to face a situation like this and I am definitely grateful that we have these skills," Steuer said. "It was scary but it has brought our team closer together and honestly, I think it's made us better lifeguards."

All three lifeguards graduated from high school this year.


Steuer and Hinkle went to Lawrenceburg and Davis went to Rising Sun.


Pool manager DeeDee Abbott praised their actions saying, "I am so very proud of these girls and they did exactly what they were trained to do, and they truly saved a life."
