    Drowning prompts warning




    March 27, 2008

    Lifeguards have urged beachgoers to swim only at patrolled beaches following the death of a man at Byron Bay on Tuesday afternoon.
    A member of the public alerted police via Triple 000 that a lone man was in distress in the surf near Belongil Creek.

    Lifeguards on rescue jet skis responded, but were unable to find any trace of the swimmer. An extensive search was started involving lifeguards, volunteer lifesavers from the Byron Bay Surf Life Saving Club and the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter.
    The 35-year-old man from Sydney was located and brought to shore on a jet ski, but could not be revived.

    Blue! Interestingly enough we used rope systems over this last swiftwater rescue boat course, but we only had little silly trees, you had a big mast probably made out of a tree. lol

    Surf rescue demo lights up final day of Vodacom Easter Vodacom rescue team : photo courtesy Vodacom



    Vodacom Surf Rescue Demo
    SURF RESCUE ON FINAL DAY OF VODACOM EASTER ADRENALINE
    Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 25 March, 2008 : - - Durban’s North beach was the scene of a dramatic Vodacom Surf Rescue Demo, which started out as a demonstration but soon turned into a real-life rescue situation. The demonstration formed part of the Vodacom Easter Adrenaline festival driven by the KZN Department of Transport.
    Amadi Asumani, a Durban resident, was out “just enjoying” an afternoon swim when, after 10 minutes, he became fatigued and “couldn’t swim fast enough”. In a most fortuitous set of circumstances, the Vodacom Surf Rescue Demo stumbled upon a person in genuine distress. Luckily for the struggling bather, lifeguards with Jet Ski’s and paramedics were on scene, and executed a successful and slick rescue.
    Marvee Sheahan, the driver of the Jet Ski, was the first person out on the scene. “We were doing a show, and had got out and picked up a false patient. When we saw that there was another guy in real trouble, we dropped off the false patient and picked up the man in distress”. Exemplifying the value of rescue demonstrations such as these, Sheahan told of how they “used standard procedure, positioned the patient on the backboard and monitored breathing”. Paramedics were on the scene, and took over from Sheahan as soon as they had reached the shore. Alberts Breed Managing Executive, Vodacom Kwazulu Natal, was fortunate not to have to retract his claim of “no serious incidents” over the long weekend. However, Asumani’s rapid rescue, and the improved safety of Durban’s beaches over the weekend, is a testament to the excellent preparation of the event organisers and safety professionals involved in Vodacom’s Easter Adrenaline Festival driven by the KwaZulu Natal Department of Transport.

    Yeah, that's really a "DUMB" question The reason they entitle themselves "RESCUE" is because they don't use Sea Doo They are in the rescue bussiness "Not recovery or Towing Bussiness"
