Man escapes serious injury in shore dump
A man in his 50s has escaped serious injury after being struck by a wave and dumped onto the shore at Killcare Beach on Easter Sunday, April 21.
"The infamous Killcare shore dump struck again with a man in his 50s brought to shore with the symptoms of what could have been a serious spinal injury," said Killcare Surf Life Saving Club president Mr Peter Bagnall.
"Patrol Three under Garry Lofberg was the usual model of calm efficiency stabilising the patient until the ambulance arrived.
"With perfect weather, there was plenty of off-duty backup, particularly Lynne Robinson and rookie Archie Krix, providing great support.
"The man was diagnosed at hospital with serious whiplash," Mr Bagnall said.
