Three lifeguards at the Texas Tech Aquatics Center were awarded the highest honor from the Red Cross for saving a life over the summer.

Diego Silva, Sarah Sustrick and Sean Pinal received the Lifesaving Award for reviving a victim who suffered a heart attack while in the water.

"It's very important to me, it's a great recognition of what we've done, but regardless of the award, we still know what we did was an amazing act," said Pinal. "We were very very proud and blessed to have been part of this and also to receive this kind of award today."

Pinal says the rescue was a reminder of the importance of training.
