My First Victim

Yesterday at work, I had my first victim as a life guard.  My first real life situation where my skills as a life guard were needed.  My victim had been stung by a bee in the chest and was experiencing severe pain around the area.  I used the sting relief we carry in our first aid kit and an ice pack to help reduce the burning sensation.  The discomfort and pain went away in about 30 minutes, due to my help as a life guard.

Oh, did I mention my first victim was me?
