(Updated at 11:45 a.m. on 5/25/2022) A man was rescued from North Shore pool in Reston Sunday afternoon (May 22) after a team effort. 

According to the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, an older man was swimming laps at the pool when he had a medical emergency.

A team of lifeguards and bystanders swiftly intervened to perform CPR and use an Automatic External Defibrillator before county rescue crews arrived.

An FFXnow reader said the response was impressive, as the community came together to rescue the man.

Fairfax County Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene around 12:50 p.m.

The man regained consciousness and was taken to a local hospital.

“No further information is currently available about the condition of the individual,” Reston Association spokesperosn Mike Leone said. 

The pool reopened nearly two hours after the incident. 

Reston Association employs American Red Cross certified lifeguards at its aquatics facilities,” Leone wrote in a statement. “Our staff is trained to initiate an Emergency Action Plan in the event of an accident or medical emergency. The safety of our patrons is our first priority.”

RA is now in the second week of its 2022 pool season. The North Shore pool and spa are open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends, and from 1-7 p.m. on weekdays.
