    Jan 13, 2021 By Surf Live Saving Admin

    Congratulations to Wanda Surf Life Saving Club
    member Lachlan Crawford who has been 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. Lachlans 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.

    A nomination for this month was also recieved from North Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club for 9 year old Maxwell Hawkins who performed a rescue at 1.30 pm on this same day north of North Cronulla whilst he was out paddling his board. Maxwell assisted a lady to shore who was in distress in a rip. Well done Maxwell.
