A Rescue from the Past


Nathan (on board) and Mark (in water) rescue a teenage swimmer at Kurrawa Beach.

It was Saturday, 7 March 2018.


A gorgeous sunny day with a strong current between the shore break and the outer break at Kurrawa Beach.


Nathan Newson and Mark Dore (2017 Robert Gatenby Life Saver of the Year) noticed a sixteen year old boy struggling in the current as he attempted to swim to the outer break. They both leapt into action, Mark grabbing a tube and Nathan a board, and sprinted into the water.


Reaching the distressed teenager, Nathan helped the swimmer cling onto his board and along with Mark, assisted the swimmer back to shore, where he was reunited with his concerned father.
