Man rescued and saved with CPR following drowning at Bondi Beach
A man in his 30s has been saved by lifeguards and bystanders following a drowning incident at Bondi Beach.
Just before 3.00pm lifeguards responded to a man who was found face down in the water unconscious. He was pulled from the surf and CPR was commenced.
After eight rounds of CPR the man regained consciousness and was assessed by NSW Ambulance Paramedics.
The response time and action of the lifeguards and bystanders was so quick that the man was able to communicate well with paramedics after initially being found pulseless.
He has been transported to hospital in a stable condition after a specialist medical team attended.
NSW Ambulance Inspector Giles Buchanan commented that CPR is vital in all drowning cases and it's a life saver.
