They know so much about these kids - that they were 12-18 years old, yet they still know so little

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police are investigating after they say a 19-year-old lifeguard was attacked in the city's Mayfair section.

It happened Monday night at the Vogt Pool.

Witnesses tell Action News that a group of kids kept trying to jump into a pool as employees were wrapping up. At the same time, detectives say surveillance video shows the 19-year-old speaking to a child's mother who was suspended from the pool earlier in the day for cursing.

While the mother was contesting the suspension, police say more of her family members came back to the pool and an altercation ensued.

Police say a woman sucker-punched the 19-year-old lifeguard in the face.

A 45-year-old man, who is the father of another lifeguard, tried to intervene and was apparently attacked by at least 15 teens between the ages of 12-18.

The victims suffered non-life threatening injuries. The lifeguard was back on duty Tuesday.

Police are continuing their investigation.

They extended public pool hours because of the heat

They can't.

This is why attacking the lifeguard is extremely counterproductive.

Much like a tree falling in the woods, if a dude gets jumped, and nobody screams “World Star!!!!” is it actually an assault?

Serves the lifeguard right for trying to close the pool at the regular, posted time and then telling the woman who was already banned from there that she wasn't allowed to be there. Also serves the 45 year old parent right for attempting to defend a 19 year old who was doing his job from a large group of teenagers who should never have to adhere to any rules whatsoever and can do whatever they want with no consequences or else they can respond with violence which also results in no consequences.

Maybe it doesn't have a deep end?
