It was an extremely busy day and flags were placed to the North end. We were stretched for resources with everyone trying to keep people out of the rip forming south of the flags. The south end rip was attracting many people because of the location of the flags.
Ashleigh stayed at the south end by herself for the whole patrol. She was diligent in keeping people safe. However there was one person that got in trouble and she successful perform a rescue with a tube.
Shane was on patrol with AR 3 on Saturday morning 10 March, the conditions were very rough, only one set of flags were up due to the conditions and the South Maroubra patrol was responsible for the flagged area. At 9:30 am Shane noticed two swimmers in difficulty outside the southern end of the flagged area, Shane the beach inspector grabbed the rescuers boards and proceeded through the break, Shane reached his swimmer and assisted him back to the bank. The flagged area was then closed.
At 11:30 Shane assisted another swimmer when Shane noticed a woman in difficulty beyond the break, Shane grabbed the rescue tube and assisted the woman to shore. Well done Whitey!
