Water temp will get you even if you’re a good swimmer.

I used to be a city lifeguard, and went into the ocean in Maui last year to bring in a middle aged woman who was calling for help.

Even though she was completely cooperative, I was utterly exhausted by the time I got her to shore.

I will never go into the ocean to help anyone again without a floatation device. To attempt a rescue without one is almost suicidal.

Died while trying to rescue a dog. That’s practically a ticket straight to heaven.

I was in the USCG a long time, and I’ve never heard of the 47 foot lifeboat.

That’s a lot of rubber.

Never leave a member of your pack behind.

The dog and the wife will never forget-—and I daresay the dog will repay his master’s sacrifice ten times over.

Sad. I don’t think I could stand by and watch my friend die, either.
