Certified lifeguard Jeff Thompson showed TODAY national investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen how to save the life of someone who's drowning:
- Scream for someone to call 911.
- Never jump in the pool after someone in the water, because they can pull you under. "Use something like a skimmer or something long you can find around the house to bring them to the side," Thompson said.
- Grab them by the wrists and pull them up out of the water.
- Roll them over check their airway and their breathing. If necessary, start CPR.
