Volunteer lifesavers carry out double rescue
Volunteer lifesavers from Killcare Surf Life Saving Club carried out a double rescue on Easter Monday after three friends decided to jump into a rip north of the patrolled area away from the flags.
Although there didn't appear to be a large swell, there was no shortage of rogue waves and lots of tricky currents that left the beach closed for most of the Easter long weekend, according to patrol captain Mr Grey Judd.
"It was a very serious situation followed with the help of Jennifer Webb and Kynan Hughes and being supported by the outstanding performance of those on patrol," Mr Judd said.
"Ultimately it was the coolness under pressure of the two 16-year-olds that did us all so proud," he said.
"Jennifer Webb's 80 metres out rescue ... and Leah Judd's first aid delivery in tricky circumstances were a credit to the club.
"It was a very serious rescue we are all still processing," he said.
