Amazing rescue efforts from four surf clubs after three people, including an 11-year-old, were stuck in a rip off Forresters Beach yesterday morning.
It's believed two people, possible family members, went in after the child.
One lifesaver described the water as 'like a washing machine' & the duty officer said he could not understand why anyone would attempt to swim in those conditions.
Crews found a man being supported by a surfer on his board and transported him on the boat then a jet ski.
Paramedics then treated him on the scene while the other two were taken in by other surfers.
