Lifeguard and swimmers

Tina Hill grew up coming to Euclid Beach in Cleveland and now, she brings her two young kids there. And while she never takes her eyes off of them — she said lifeguards are badly needed.

“I just think it would be safer,” Hill said. “For kids, for parents, [to have] some extra eyes.”
A job posting on the Cleveland MetroParks  website simply says they’re looking for lifeguards for Edgewater and Euclid beaches from May to Labor Day.
The Euclid posting is new and comes after a strong push from residents and city officials.
In the past, MetroParks officials have said erosion, shifting currents and sudden drop-offs make swimming there unsafe.
It’s not banned, but big signs state, “Swim at your own risk” and “Unguarded area.”
