This is an awesome vidclip. While there were two cops involved in the rescue, this is one of those far too rare situations where the public did NOT just stand by, looking after themselves while someone's life slips away from them. This rescue simply could not have happened without basically everyone near the unfolding event getting involved and helping.
I lived close to this beach for 4 years and i can tell you it is one wicked beach. This kid would have possibly only been metres into the surf when it got him.
Go the HUMAN CHAIN!!!!!!!
