This is truly frightening, because as much as we think we might notice someone struggling in the water, drowning is often a silent killer...

Growing up, I always wanted to work at the local pool in town because everyone looked up to you. I mean, that's a pretty important job to have, being in charge of lives like that.

I never did get that chance, but my brother and several of my friends were lifeguards, and none of them received the full credit they deserved because in the blink of an eye, everything can change, and that's on their conscience if they were to ever fall asleep on the job.

That's why this is so scary. After watching the video below, I'm sad to admit that didn't see the kid drowning until the lifeguard dove into the pool.

Thankfully this lifeguard, knowing what exactly to search for, could spot and save him before it was too late.

Think you can spot the victim before the lifeguard on duty does? Go ahead and give it a try:
