Good to hear about a negative event turning positive instead of the other way around.

Well done to the Lifeguards and to the authorities who appointed them.

Hope Mr Goran is OK and fully recovers...AND gets fully checked out because even at 77 one shouldn't just faint - probably some underlying cause of which he's unaware.
