Lifeguard a life-saver
Around 6:05 p.m. on Sunday, July 24, Adrienne Nelson, a lifeguard at Spirit Lake Beach in Menahga, had just sat down when she noticed flailing arms and a child sputtering in the water.
"I was scared. I couldn't tell exactly if she was just floating and messing around, I just couldn't quite determine," Nelson said. "Her arms were moving, but then I knew she was just too little."
Nelson ran out into the knee-deep water and carried the 4-year-old girl to shore.
