So somebody called 911, but left her in the pool? Did the employer not want to sully his/her hands? Maybe they were wearing their going out clothes and didn't want to get them wet? For shame.

Maybe they couldn't swim. Don't judge someone because they may have more or less money than you. Just trying to remain impartial. Judge thyself.
