Swimmers in Distress - NON Bathing beach.
Two holiday makers got into difficulty when swimming at a non-bathing beach in Salt Rock, earlier today.
One swimmer managed to get to shore and call for help. A nearby resident saw the female swimmer in distress, caught in the rip and being swept out to sea.
He swam out with a bodyboard to her rescue. Once by her side, her rescuer gave her the board to paddle back to shore while he swam back.
Both patients were treated by IPSS Paramedics and transported to hospital for further care.
Well done to the good samaritan that assisted, you are a true hero.
