We were at the pool the other day and I was talking with my friend and I looked over and saw Sawyer looking down at something in the water. I walked over to see what he was looking at and there was a small toddler head down in the water with its feet floating at the top. The child was limp and not moving at all. I leaned over and grabbed the childs foot and started to get them out of the pool, when a woman said to me quietly “it is not real”. I stared down at the small child only to realize it was a doll. It was the size of a 3 year old child and it had hair and a swim suit on and everything. It looked very real to me. Come to find out it was a test for the Lifeguards. One of the Lifeguards had put the child in the water to see how long it took the other lifeguard to notice. I stood there and watched and waited for the Lifeguard to notice this dying child. It took about 2 minutes! 2 Minutes too late! This child would have been dead. I stood their and watched as everyone at the pool went on with their conversations and activities while this child went un noticed. This was a big wake up call to me! You cannot depend on a Lifeguard to save your child. You cannot depend on other people to save your child. You really need to watch your own children while at the pool. You are the only one you can depend on. After the 2 minutes had passed, the Lifeguard jumped into the water and swam across to save the small doll child. I didn’t get a picture that day but I attached a picture I found of what the doll looked like.
