Clemence, a French tourist, saved four swimmers at Piha

French tourist rescues swimmers at PihaClemence, left,  heard a woman on the beach call out that there were swimmers in trouble.  She paddled toward them and brought them back safely with her surf board.

She told me they were very panicky and one grabbed hold of her leg and wouldn’t let go.


First Response and Rescue Helilcoper PihaSome 5 Piha First Responders were on Piha Beach pretty quickly followed by the Rescue Helicopter.

Thanks ‘Piha First Response‘ – always there when we need you night or day.

Better not forget Duncan on the water’s edge keeping people safe from the helicopter.
