Hawaii Lifeguard Rescues Struggling Swimmer on Oahu’s North Shore

A lifeguard in Oahu, Hawaii, came to the rescue of a swimmer in distress on January 8, battling the rough sea to bring the woman to safety.

Footage by Ingo Rademacher shows the rescue, after the woman got caught in a rip current. Freddie Booth, the Ocean Safety lifeguard on patrol, can be seen wasting no time in entering the water.

“We had some pretty large surf, probably 8 to 10 foot,” Ocean Safety Lieutenant Kerry Atwood told Hawaii News Now.

Such high surf in that area “is extremely dangerous,” he said. "We don’t have a stationary lifeguard tower there so we do rely on patrols.” Credit: Ingo Rademacher via Storyful
