Spending $800 an hour to fly the helicopter to tell kids to get out of the pool because we don’t have money for lifeguards just sums up America perfectly.
“This is the Baltimore City Police Dept. helicopter unit. Please exit the swimming pool. There is no lifeguard on duty. For your safety, exit the swimming pool.”

Right?! Or if you must, just send someone to the pool to tell people to GTFO??

That would work for adults who can swim, but kids need a guard who can quickly recognize the signs of a child struggling and knows how to safely get a struggling swimmer out of the water, and resuscitate if needed. #LifeguardsMatter
