Salt Lake college softball player rescues swimmer
A Salt Lake Community College softball player is being credited for rescuing a swimmer in a lake Twin Falls, Idaho.
The team travelled there for a round of playoff games and took a break to visit nearby Dierkes Lake Friday afternoon.
The team was packing up when a man in the lake who appeared to be in his 20s started yelling and waving his arms.
Freshman player and former lifeguard Megan Bradshaw jumped in the water. Bradshaw and the husband of a teammate then pulled the swimmer onshore.
Bradshaw tells KSL-TV, "I've never had anything like that happen to me. It doesn't seem real."
Bradshaw says the man told her he began floundering when his legs cramped up and thanked her for pulling him out of the lake.
