Pools experience lifeguard shortage for the summer

ST. LOUIS-  Reports show  many area pools are facing a severe lifeguard shortage. Recruiters say there are not enough qualified lifeguards domestically.

American students have so many other job opportunities in the booming economy that many are shunning lifeguard gigs.

The situation is so bad, companies have set off a 'bidding war' for students as young as 15.
