SYDNEY BRANCH – RESCUE OF THE MONTH WINNER
Congratulations to Wanda’s Lachlan “Lachie” Crawford who was recognised as the Branch monthly winner Rescue of the Month for December.
Lachlan successfully rescued 2 near-drowning swimmers off track 15 at Wanda Beach on 27 December 2020 at approximately 3.43 pm. Lachlan was not on patrol at the time but was going for a body surf when he spotted the 2 POIs in trouble. Lachlan’s efforts to respond immediately to rescue these people certainly proved a positive outcome. Assistance was also aided by members of Elouera SLSC roving patrol, RWC operator Kane Hughes and Cameron Pyett and Jon Hayman Sutherland Shire Lifeguards. A great effort by all involved.
