What a day.
I saw a kid flailing in the water ar String Lake in the Grand Tetons. At first I thought he was just screwing around but he started doing that thing where they throw their heads back trying to stay afloat.
I told my kids to get to shore then dove in and swam out to him and drug him in. Poor kid was pretty shook up. He fell off of his float. Who the fuck puts their kid on a float in a lake when they cant swim?
The mother/guardian came over and thanked me profusely and then after a while she put him in a different float!!! They left shortly after that though.
Man there were a bunch of people standing around but none moved to help the boy. It was surreal. He was on his way down when I got to him.
