Joann Ferguson receives the award
We are proud to share with you a remarkable achievement of our fellow surfer,
who recently received the Rotary Club Bravery Award for saving a life.
The incident occurred the summer of 2013 at Joann's community pool when she noticed an adult male at the bottom of a 6ft deep pool.
She dove in and carried him out of the pool. He was not breathing and was blue. Joann started CPR and was able to get the victim to
breathe on his own. Paramedics and police quickly arrived and took over medical care. The victim was transported to the hospital
where he was treated and released after 4 days.
