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.
