blink of an eye episode 1 - the call

The Call. On a hot summer day in 2015, a prominent professional and mother of 5 receives the phone call that will change the rest of her — and her family’s — life. One of her children, her son Archer, while at the beach, dove into the Atlantic Ocean for a quick, cooling swim as he’s done hundreds of times before. But this time, something went terribly wrong. Join Louise for the powerful pilot episode of this extraordinary journey of life and death, trauma and epiphany, featuring the impact of trauma on her and others and interviews with people at the scene on both sides of a rapidly unfolding timeline of life-and-death decision-making. A remarkable story of loss, advocacy, and resilience begins.

This episode features excerpts from recent interviews Louise had with Jacqui Schmucker, a co-worker of Archer's that summer at the Beach Club, and Davis Barsby, the Assistant Manager at the Beach Club, the head lifeguard at the time of the accident, and a lifelong friend of the Senft family.

Please join Louise for this episode of Blink of an Eye.
