Lifeguard aquittal highlights duty of care


On the 30th July 2002 Danny Phillips an off duty Lifeguard was asked if he would help out.  He agreed.  The rest is history, 30 minutes later 2 boys lay dead on the bottom of the pool.  With Danny’s assistance and that of the Barrister and for the benefit of the industry I wrote an article about the incident and subsequent legal case.  The article was published in the ISRM journal ‘Recreation’ in January 2007.
