What a strong, powerful and brave teen! She keeps our NJ beaches safe.
Eden: “I’m a senior at Point Boro High School. I’ve always wanted to be a lifeguard when I was little. This year I finally decided to go for it. But I am only 5 feet tall, and weigh only 100 pounds. There were people who told me they thought I couldn’t be a lifeguard because I was too small. But I didn’t care. I went for tryouts, and made it. Every day on the job we would train. We did first aid training, CPR training, water drills, everything we needed to go over to get ourselves prepared.
"My first save was my first week on the job. Both of my partners were on lunch break. We had breaks from 12 to 12:30, and 12:30 to 1:00. So when your stand partner is on break, you’re alone for 30 minutes each day. I had just gotten back from lunch and my partner then went on break, so I was alone. Soon I saw this 10 year old girl who was struggling in the water, and I was like, 'Oh my God, I'm alone right now. This is all on me.' It was a yellow flag day, and she was out pretty far. I was kind of nervous but I called it in to the rest of the beaches, then I went in. As soon as I hit the water I knew I had to swim as fast as I could. There was no other option. It was up to me to get to her. My mind kind of went blank and it was just all adrenaline. I was super focused on getting to her. It was such a surreal feeling.
"There was one point where a strong wave pushed me back, and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh,’ but l got past it, which was a confidence booster. I told myself, ‘I just have a little bit farther to go! I'm almost there!’
"When I reached her, she was super scared. She kept apologizing, ‘I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to go out that far.’ I kept telling her it was ok, that I was going to get her in safely. So I just told her to hold on to the torp, I got my arms around her, and I told her, ‘We're going to go in now. You can kick for me if you can.' At that point a partner from another beach came over to get her with me.
"When we got in, her mom was so grateful. The girl was so scared. I offered her some water, and then they left. The most special part of that save was at the end of the day, my captain told me that he found out she was autistic. I was so impressed with that girl’s courage.
"I ended up getting Save of the Summer award, which was super special to me because going into that summer, I had a goal for myself: I wanted to win Rookie of the Year because I wanted to prove that even though I'm super short, and some people thought I couldn't do it, I wanted to prove them wrong. And I did. We didn't end up having that award this year, but winning Save of Summer was super cool. This was the best summer of my life, and I cannot wait to go back next summer."

Off-Duty Transit Police Officer saves 2 from drowning at NJ beach
On Tuesday, September 13th, off-duty NJ Transit Police Officer Sjosward was fishing from shore at Island State Park Beach in Seaside Heights. He, and two friends were at a location which was not staffed by lifeguards.
Officer Sjosward went to retrieve an item from his vehicle and upon his return, both of his friends were unaccounted for. They had both been swept away from shore. While scanning the area, Sjosward noticed one of his friends in the water, struggling to stay above the surface.
The friend was being pulled by an apparent rip current. To rescue his friend, Sjosward grabbed a body board from his vehicle and entered the water. He swam to his friend’s location and attempted to drag his friend to shore via the bodyboard. This was unsuccessful as the board’s line snapped. The board was ultimately swept away. Sjosward subsequently utilized his Water Survival and Intervention training to bring his friend to shore via a rescue technique.
With one friend on shore, Sjosward again drew his attention to the water. He observed the other friend partially submerged and being pulled away. Despite extreme exhaustion, and with disregard for his own life and safety, Sjosward again entered the water. He made his way to his friend, fought through the current and brought him to shore.
Sjosward flagged down a passing motorist who assisted in calling 911 and both friends were transported to urgent medical aid. They would ultimately survive. Officer Sjosward’s actions exemplify our NJTPD Core Values: Honor, Commitment, Integrity, and Courage.

Here's a bit of 4th of July trivia for you..did you know that of all the signers (56) of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 only two went on to become president? They were John Adams and Thomas Jefferson...chillingly yet appropriately, they both died within a few hours of each other in 1826, Jefferson at Monticello and Adams at Peacefield in Quincy, MA, 550 miles apart...ON THE 4th of JULY!!!!!
John wrote the following to his wife, Abigail: "This second day of July, 1776*, will be the most memorable epocha in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."
~Happy 4th All~
* Independence was declared on July 2, 1776, but its final version, complete with edits, was approved by Congress on July 4. The Declaration of Independence wasn't completely signed until August 2, 1776. (it took almost a month to get the document to all remaining signers scattered about the 13 colonies, 56 signatures in all)
