Rescue Sunday 3rd July 2011

A very busy day on the beach due to hot and sunny weather as well as large surf. At 18.00 the location of the tide and strength of the current and volume of people on the beach and in the water made it impossible for lifeguards to leave the beach at normal closing time.

Rescue 18.20 – A 13 year old boy was caught in the strong current and being pulled towards the point. Chris Page was patrolling the point on the RWC and spotted the boy in difficulty. Timing the pick up between waves the boy was pulled to safety on board the RWC and brought back to shore.

Duty Lifeguards: Chris Page, Gareth Davies jnr, Nathan Evans
Conditions: 3-4 foot clean surf, hot and sunny
