Guarding Lives and Secrets

When you think of summertime, you think of the beach, or, at the very least, of the pool or lake. Swimming freely is the perfect way to cool down under the hot sun, but it comes with its own dangers, namely drowning.

Luckily we have lifeguards, those perfectly-bronzed, scantily-clad saviors of summer who keep us safe all summer long, always looking perfectly coiffed while doing it. But being a lifeguard isn’t always as dignified as sitting high on that stand or saving lives. Sometimes, lifeguards have to deal with much more humbling problems, such as faulty bathing suits or unidentified floating objects that can clear out an entire pool.

Redditors turned to lifeguards from beaches, pools, and water parks and asked them to share their embarrassing stories or hilarious tales, and this is what they came up with.
