The rescue showed that training works, said Davine, adding that the park staff and ``junior lifeguards’’ also helped, making a gratifying team effort.
``We’re just doing our job — that’s why we’re paid to be there,’’ Davine said. ``All this fanfare is a little bit ridiculous.’’
Mayton said the rescue taught him team work is crucial, and to ``always be prepared — no matter what. We both kept our heads. We were just working and did our jobs."
