Lifeguard fined after father-of-three drowns

A lifeguard who failed to notice a father-of-three lifeless at the bottom of a Walsall swimming pool was yesterday (26/10) convicted at Wolverhampton Crown Court.

Father-of-three Adrian Miles, 48, had gone swimming at the University of Wolverhampton pool on the Walsall Campus, as part of his recovery from a rugby injury. He got into difficulties, but one of the lifeguards on duty was distracted for a prolonged period while supervising the pool and failed to spot him lying at the bottom.
