Boy heard screaming for help rescued from rip current by lifeguard

329,167 views 1 week ago
RNLI lifeguards rescued a boy who had been dragged away from Crooklets Beach in Bude, Cornwall, in a very strong rip current while bodyboarding.
He was heard screaming for help so lifeguard Joby Wolfenden-Brown paddled out on a rescue board and grabbed the boy, who was exhausted and clearly in a lot of distress. He was brought back to shore safely and reunited with his family.
Chris Wafer, RNLI lifeguard supervisor, gives this advice: 'If you're stuck in a rip current do not panic or swim against the current, keep hold of your flotation device and raise your arm to signal for help.'

Respect The Water Play

Water can be a lot of fun and for many communities in the UK & Ireland it's a way of life. But our seas, coastlines and inland waterways can be unpredictable and dangerous places.

160 people die at the coast each year. Don't be one of them. #RespectTheWater, check the facts: http://bit.ly/1pcmvOz
