Lifeguards ‘ignored my cries’


Share post:

LIFEGUARDS at Accra Beach ignored his cries for help, a visitor says.
Bill Reece, from Britain, said he almost drowned on Monday and lifeguards who were on duty at the beach did nothing to save him even though he called out for help. But he was full of praise for a Swiss visitor, whom he identified as Nicola, for rescuing him and bringing him back to shore.
Reece recalled that at 5:40 p.m. he was swimming directly in front of the lifeguard station, which he said was open and attended by two lifeguards.
“I found that I was being dragged out by a rip tide which took me out of my depth. I am not a particularly strong swimmer, so I recognized I was having difficulty making it back to shore. After trying to get to shore for more than five minutes, I then called for help,” he said.
