Description of Incident
Josephine Parker,73, got into difficulty in the swimming pool at Sir John Wilson baths in Airdrie, Scotland before Lifeguard Brendan Fleming jumped in and saved her. The quick thinking of the lifeguard prevented a drowning after he heard coughing coming from the swimming pool. Josephine then amazingly got back into the water to participate in her aerobics session.
