Shanghai--A group of young Taiwanese lifeguards performed life saving skills in Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre on Sunday, attracting more than 2,000 elementary school students and their parents.
The group of elementary school students and teenagers, who are children of swimming coaches of Taiwan Wisdom Action Aspirant Life Saving and Swimming Association, based in Taoyuan's Zhongli District, performed a play and demonstrated their life saving skills.
Liang Tianyu (???), a third grader in the audience, said he learned that a swimmer is not necessarily a lifeguard.
Yue Liang (??), head of the centre's swimming stadium who was a professional swimmer, said the group has raised safety awareness of the audience, having practiced for a long time to do the life saving performances in China.
Cao Jinsong (???), head of Nanjing's Taiwan Affairs Office, praised the volunteers for their contribution to social development and said the lifeguards' performance is a plus for cross-strait exchanges.
