Guam - Guam's waters came close to claiming yet another life, but Department Parks & Recreation lifeguards were able to revive a Korean woman. Guam Fire Department personnel were called to Ypao Beach in Tumon just after 11:30 this morning.
Lifeguard Joe Nauta told KUAM News, "We heard some yelling and then Lifeguard April responded to it, and as he was responding I ran up to the tower, grabbed the pocket mask, came down, as soon as they brought the victim in, she was unresponsive. We did two cycles of CPR then she became responsive."
The woman, 36, is in critical condition in the Trauma Room at GMH. Nauta notes that water conditions lately have been extremely dangerous and urges residents and tourists alike to swim with a buddy. He says if in doubt, don't go out and always look for warning signs.
A High Surf Advisory is currently in effect for Guam until Wednesday.
