Read all about the RLSS Lifesaver of the Year from the Kelloggs/ASA Swimtastic Awards 2009

Awarded to an individual who through their RLSS training has helped to save a life.

2009 Winner

Gold
Jack Dudley
Age: 7
Lives: Brayton, Yorkshire

Jack saved his three-year-old brother, Sam, from drowning in his family’s swimming pool, in May 2008.  His mother had gone inside and his father had his back turned when Sam pulled his armbands off and tried to jump onto an inflatable lounger. He slipped and sank to the bottom of the pool.

Jack dived in to get his brother and after two attempts he managed to bring him up to the surface, where he was pulled out by his mother and brought back to life. Jack knew what to do because he had been having Rookie life-saving classes with his swimming club.
