Swimming with Natalie
Yesterday was a great day! I got to spend the day at the Wave with my grandchildren! And the best part was, nobody drowned. Which brings me to the question of the day. Are you ready? Here goes!
You decide to take a cool swim in the mountain top lake. BRRRRRRR! Although it is mid-June the water is definitively chilly. Cold actually. As you swim in the lake you see another group of campers standing at the water’s edge. When they see you they yell for help and point to a body floating face down in the water. Being skilled in water rescue, you jump in the water and pull the body to the shore. Once ashore you find the patient, a teenage boy, is not breathing and is cyanotic. His fingertips and lips are blue and he has no discernible pulse. What do you do?
