Where is the line between being a sticky-beak and playing wanna be journalist and writing an interesting article for my blog?
Today at Redcliffe Lagoon a young child nearly drowned. The lifeguard cleared the main pool of swimmers.
I was standing at the rear of the ambulance when the paramedics wheeled the stretcher past me. Laying with her son curled up on her chest, Mum, wide-eyed and panic-stricken, repeated the words ” I don’t think he was under for long”.
I had already taken the photos of the empty (of swimmers) pool and the ambulances with my phone. Standing there watching the paramedics load the stretcher into the back of the ambulance, I thought to myself “That would make a great shot”. I just didn’t feel right about taking it though. I didn’t take the shot because I know if I was having a tragedy or near tragedy and someone starting snapping, I would most likely grab their phone and shove it right up their *@#
