IT was juNE 30 2008 at MOntereypark Summer school at Happyday. my son is 6 yeras old. its his first time at the pool for a swimming lessons.
i was outside the fence looking at my son jump on 8 feet deep .he does not know how to swim and he does not know about how deep the water.
there were 2 teachers on the pool and i dont know it they are certified LIfeguard or not...but there was just talking to each other...while my son drown all the way down. I HAVE TO RUN AS FAST AS I COULD , AND DIVE ON THE POOL 8 FEET DEEP TO RESCUE MY ONLY SON. AND I WAS ABLE TO PULL HIM OUT OF THE WATER. I WAS VERY TERRIFFIED...AND I ASK THOSE TEACHERS MADLY ASKING THEM THAT WHO WAS INCHARGE ON THE POOL...THEY REPLY TO ME SAYING WE DONT KNOW AND THAT KID IS NOT ON OUR CLASS TRAINING, HE IS ON DIFF CLASS...I MADLY TOLD THEM WHO CARES..A PERSON IS DROWNING AND I SAW BOTH OF YOU JUST TALKING AND DID NOT KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON.
I WAS SO LUCKY THAT I WAS THERE ON MY SONS FIRST SWIMMING LESSON....OR ELSE HE IS NOT GONN MAKE IT TO HIS BIRTH-DAY THIS JULY 2 2008.....GOD BLESS...HE HAVE AN ANGEL WATCHING HIM. I NEVER IN MY LIFE SAVE A PERSON LIFE, NOT UNTIL YESTERDAY JUNE 30 2008. I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO TAKE MY SHOES AND SHIRTS OFF...I HAVE TO DIVE TO SAVE MY ONLY KID.
I WAS SO UPSET AND I DID NOT SLEEP AND I AM STILL TERRIFIED.
