Bridgeport lifeguard saves man from drowning

A Bridgeport lifeguard is being praised for saving a man's life on Thursday.



Steven Kuczo tells News 12 Connecticut his son Paul was working at the pool at Blackham School during the night recreation program when he jumped into the water to save a 28-year-old man.



He says his son has been a lifeguard for the past five years.



"It definitely feels amazing. As soon as it was happening, there was a big adrenaline rush. Afterwards, I was actually shaking for a bit because of the whole situation that happened," says Paul Kuczo.



Kuczo says he is not only proud of his son, but of all the lifeguards that work at the pool. He says just last week another lifeguard saved another swimmer from drowning.
