— A simulated drowning at Janesville's Rockport pool Thursday afternoon tests life guards and first responders.

City recreation director, Bonnie Davis, says the simulations are held on a regular basis and tests all of the responder's skill levels and techniques.

The test comes after a recent drowning incident at Janesville's Lions Beach, but Davis says the drill was scheduled before the drowning occurred.

A discussion is held after the simulation to compare notes on the results.
