Years ago when I was a Jr Lifeguard at a community pool we were taught never to go in the water without a floatation device, no matter who was having trouble in the water.
It's been a lot of years since then, but no way would I go in after anyone without at least a throwable, and preferrably my own PFD.

The first rule they teach you is that most people, even strong swimmers, who go into the water unexpectedy usually panic. Attempting to rescue someone who is panicing can be very dangerous.
Best to have on a PFD and give them a throwable. Once they calm down reach around from behind the person, with your hand under their chin, keeping it tipped up and the persons face out of the water. Then support their back with your other hand. Doing it this way is safer for everyone involved.

Must be a Muskey.

Hence the reason they need to cull more of them.
