Man rescued from Surin Beach surf, as on-duty lifesavers watch from shore

Witnesses at Surin Beach on Monday watched in bemused confusion when a man, who was in difficulty whilst swimming off Surin Beach, was helped back to shore – but not by one of the lifeguards on duty at the beach, who stood on the shore and watched the rescue take place.

 

The incident happened around 11am when a man, later identified as from Lebanon, was swimming off the beach in an area patrolled by the employed lifeguards.

There was no designated swimming area set aside by the lifeguards.
