Hi teachers. Would you say this the way I have:

She fell into the water, but a lifeguard got her pulled ashore and resuscitated her.

...a lifeguard pulled her ashore and resuscitated her.

The lifeguard pulled her ashore.

I would not say "got her pulled ashore". It sounds like he ordered someone else to do it.

Thanks, Englishmaven. Was my suggestion not natural or grammatically incorrect?

Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.

Thanks, Califjim. Could I also say "...but a lifeguard managed to pull her ashore and resuscitate her."? or "...but a lifeguard was there to pull her ashore and resuscitate her."?

anonymousbut a lifeguard was there to pull her ashore and resuscitate her.
