First Day On Job This Teen Lifeguard Rescued Pilot Who Crashed Plane Into Ocean

The plane went down just 30 yards off a private beach on Rhode Island, crowded with weekend visitors.

The 62-year-old pilot from Long Island, New York, was seen climbing out on the wing of his aircraft after it crashed.

Two lifeguards sprang into action and pulled the pilot on to a surfboard and bring him to shore. One lifeguard was identified as 18-year-old David Darling and it was his first day as a summer lifeguard.
