So, a lifeguard turns up for work and you'll never guess what happens next.

The quick reaction and skills of a lifeguard in a south Dublin swimming pool saved a man from drowning.

Conor Wright (25) was the lifeguard on duty at the Swan Leisure pool in Rathmines when a swimmer got into difficulties at around 10am onThursday.

Mr Wright dived in and reached the man. He applied mouth-to-mouth resuscitation while in the water before hauling him out.

He undoubtedly saved the man’s life,” said a Dublin Fire Brigade source
Awesome. Stop the presses. And him just a lowly lifeguard.

Next week, a fireman uses quick thinking and a fire truck to put out fire that could have killed someone. It's not all kittens stuck up tree's and cutting scammers from fake car crashes you know.

So, 'modern day hero' or doing what he is just paid to do?

He saved someone's life. He's a hero.

Ridiculous story. “Quick thinking” by the professional lifeguard to save the person drowning in the pool.

Here's the thing....

The people who do these types of jobs spend a lot of time training and preparing for the worst. The lifeguard for the distressed swimmer, the firefighter for the fire, the lifeboat crews and the Coast Guard for a vessel in distress, etc. Lots and lots of training. Repetitive, monotonous training.

They are only ever called upon to implement that training every once in a while, often risking their own lives to help others in need. Unfortunately, sometimes, they do pay the ultimate price while endeavoring to help others.

When they do succeed in rescuing, or saving a life, I believe it is only right that their heroic deeds be celebrated. None of these people were conscripted into their roles. They all voluntarily signed up to do their jobs. It's important to remember that.

I can see the point you're trying to make. However, this guy just done his job, its not HIM saying he's a hero, its other people. He could very well be embarrassed about all the fuss. Give him a break, and maybe a nod of approval? ;)
