Lifeguard saves boy from drowning at Vancouver pool

Read The Columbian

When Carter Coval saw a boy floating face down in the water Friday night, he first thought the boy was playing.

But when the 17-year-old lifeguard at Lakeshore Athletic Club had a nearby swimmer nudge the boy and he didn’t move, Coval sprung into action.

“I didn’t have to think a lot, it was mostly automatic,” Coval said. “I did what I knew how to do to save the boy.”
