Today, I was at work as a lifeguard. The temperature was absolutely stifling, but I tried to tough it out. A couple of hours into my shift, I passed out, fell off my stand, and crashed into the water. Or so the medics tell me. FML

OP, YDI for not taking a break. You could have told your boss you were not feeling well. I'm sure he would have allowed you to take break so you could get out of the heat.

It's a swimming pool. Obviously other people were there, lifeguards or bystanders. I mean, the fact OP's still alive should give you a clue, even if you don't seem to have one in general.

58- I didn't say I didn't know if OP made it, I don't know what you're getting at there. Also, small community pools are often empty where I live, maybe that's not normal. No need to be an ass, though.

OP - I'd be thankful you landed in to the water, otherwise you would have been leaving with a few less teeth than what you came with. Its just as well someone saw you fall in though.

Well at least you didn't have to be rescued from drowning. That would have been I infinitely more embarrassing! Seriously though, OP, you need to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water and a gatorade now and then and this won't happen again.
