Life savers rescue woman

QUICK witted and determined life savers from Evans Head saved a woman who was rescued 400m off shore on Monday night.

The three life savers responded to an emergency call at 7.00 on Monday night and where out in the surf within 10 minutes, where they were able to locate and rescue the women before nightfall.

If darkness had fallen just five minutes earlier the chances that the rescue would have been successful were very low Jon Rigley, captain of the Casino-Evans Head surf life savers said.
