  • Dramatic rescue footage of concussed bodyboarder in big Cape Town waves [video]
    Posted by on May 20th, 2014

    Being caught between pretty decent sized waves is tough enough as is and many of you not-so-strong swimmers will remember the panic of getting tired and going nowhere while the next wave barrels towards you. Now imagine being concussed and stuck in the rip of a heavy Noordhoek set. A life threatening situation that played out over the weekend when a bodyboarder recieved a concussion and his dramatic rescue was captured on video. Fellow bodyboarders, Aden Kleve and Wilder Schultz, spotted the distressed guy and came to his rescue.

    Here’s the footage.

    Filmed by David McMaster there is no doubt that if the other two guys hadn’t spotted the concussed bodyboarder he would likely have drowned.

    Well done rescuers. Life saved. Pat on the back.
