Lifeguard is making ‘excellent progress’
A lifeguard who stopped breathing while he was having a swim at Peterborough’s Regional Swimming Pool is making “an excellent recovery.”
The off-duty lifeguard was swimming during a public session on Wednesday, August 23 when he had to be taken out of the pool by staff.
He was later taken to Peterborough City Hospital after being given CPR while the pool was shut for the day to allow for Peterborough City Council’s environmental health team to carry out an investigation.
A spokesman for Vivacity, which runs the pool in Bishop’s Road, said: “We remain in close contact with the lifeguard’s family members who report he is making an excellent recovery and it is hoped he will be discharged from hospital in the next few days.”
He added that the pool reopened the following morning following the inspection with normal service resuming.
