Lifeguard Tanner Thielemann (right) received the Lantana Police Department’s Lifesaving Award during the July 27thTown Council meeting. Police Chief Sean Scheller, who made the presentation, said Thielemann, a 34-year-old South Palm Beach resident, noticed a distressed swimmer yelling for help about 60 yards offshore on May 23. Thielemann grabbed a buoy and swam out to bring the 18-year-old man safely back to shore. Earlier that day, Thielemann, a lifeguard and marine safety officer in Lantana for five years, had been talking to beach-goers about the dangers of rip tides which were occurring that day.
