New Jersey author chronicles bravery of Jersey Shore lifeguards in new book
Every lifeguard has a story. Maybe it's the tale of that one dramatic, adrenaline-pumping rescue. Or the heartbreaking tragedy of pulling someone from the water just bit too late.
Those stories are now collected in a new book by a photographer known for chronicling the lives of everyday people down at the Jersey Shore.
"Sand, Sea and Rescue - Lifeguards of the Jersey Shore" by Gregory Andrus is dedicated to the memory of two lifeguards killed last summer.
And it gathers into one place a collection of photos and stories that illustrate the spirit and selflessness of those who save scores of lives every summer.
On today's Brian's Positively New Jersey, Andrus explains how his own life struggles gave rise to his determination to tell the stories of Jersey Shore lifeguards.
