Three Rothschild Aquatic Center lifeguards have been honored for helping save a child's life in July.

On Tuesday night, at the Schofield City Hall, Miranda Klos, Elizabeth Hamilton-Zahn, and Rachel Hanke were presented with the Lifesaving Award by the Rothschild Police Department, Rothschild Fire Department, Schofield City Hall and the Rothschild Village Board.

The Lifesaving Award states: “On July 18, 2014 the Rothschild/Schofield Aquatic Center lifeguards observed a child in distress in the pool. The lifeguards acted in emergency mode and pulled the child out of the water and medical assistance was provided. CPR was administered and the child was revived. The child was later transported by the Rothschild Fire Department to the hospital where she was treated and released. As a result of Miranda Klos’, Elizabeth Hamilton-Zahn’s, and Rachel Hanke’s quick response and medical assistance, a potential life threatening situation was averted.”
