Some people just cannot stay off their phones... but a lifeguard should not be one of those people.

I was a lifeguard and I know how important it is to be vigilant when on duty. People can be injured or even die if a lifeguard is not paying attention. Texting or scrolling on your phone has no place in the lifeguard stand.

According to News 12, the lifeguard was disciplined for his actions.
