The son of 12-year Venetian team member, Chris Saghin, Tristin rescued his two-year-old sister, Brooke, from their family’s backyard pool back in April. After learning CPR from his all-time favorite movie “Black Hawk Down,” Tristin revived Brooke and performed CPR until paramedics arrived.

John Caparella, president and chief operating officer of The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo, was on hand to award Tristin with a plaque dubbing him an honorary lifeguard. Lifeguards of The Venetian presented Tristin with an honorary t-shirt, whistle and buoy before he climbed into the lifeguard stand overlooking the pools. His father Chris, a founding team member of The Venetian, remarked that Tristin has always been a hero in the family and he is blessed to have him as a son.
