  1. Nobody seems to wander why this happened. Or rather everybody knows very well why so many people faint so much on video….

  2. Huh – I wonder whatever could have caused yet another young athlete to tip over on the field of play? This is happening all over the western world and many are dying.

  3. Everyone defending the life guards should give it a second thought. I was involved with synchronized swimming for years and anytime a competitor stops moving, that is NOT part of the routine. Yes, the coach would know first but the life guards should had been in the second the coach jumped in as well. Poor job by life guards.

  4. 😀😁😁😁😀😀😀😀😀😁😁😀😀😁😁😀😀😀nikoho nezajimate.

  5. All coaches, physical Training teachers must learn from this. They should be owning, caring and guiding their trainees with at most care and not treat them as just things.

  6. The scandal was that the responsible lifeguards were not allowed to intervene due to rules. The coch had to take the initiative.
