In nearly 10 feet of water, the man and woman were drowning. Hunter said that after the lifeguards went in and got the victims out, he jumped out of the pool to assist with CPR. They conducted chest compressions until the arrival of D.C. Fire and EMS.

D.C. Fire and EMS Public Information Officer Vito Maggiolo said the man and lady were resuscitated once first responders arrived. Both were then flown by helicopter to a nearby hospital.
