Pre-COVID Event: East Hills’ Lifeguard to the Rescue!

East Hills Mayor Michael Koblenz presented to Jennifer Broncato a commendation for excellent performance of her duties as a lifeguard at the September 18, 2019 Village Board Meeting. On August 24, 2019, Ms. Broncato jumped into the pool to save a teenage boy who was drowning. The youth was pulled to the side and, thanks to her know-how and expertise, he is fine. Ms. Broncato is a college student majoring in nursing. Mayor Koblenz said “our community is truly appreciative to Jennifer for her exemplary actions which prevented what might have otherwise been a tragedy. Jennifer is a fine example and exceptional standout.”
