Bondi Rescue

7:00pm Saturday, June 23 on Prime

Reality Series

The morning begins with a man reporting to lifeguards that his friend has not been seen since going for a midnight swim. Fearing the worst, a major search is launched for the missing man. The end of season offers no reprieve, as lifeguards rush to a novice surfer who has severely dislocated his ankle in the shore break, whilst Bondi’s next victim is a man caught in a flash rip. Brought to the beach, Chinese student Leo appears out of danger, but then takes a serious turn for the worse.

Finally, after a long hot summer, lifeguards reflect on their season working at Australia’s busiest beach.

Occasionally Bondi reveals all its vibrant and varied colours at once. Two teenagers wake up at the beach to find their money and phones missing, leaving Deano to nut out a plan to get them home. The Bowlarama skate competition comes to Bondi and lifeguards are called to attend veteran skater Sergie Ventura, who is knocked unconscious and bleeding at the base of the bowl. Soon after, word comes into the tower that a man is naked on the beach and pushing children over. Sometimes lifeguards do much more than rescues. At Bondi, it’s virtually expected to be that way!

It’s the hottest day of the year and it seems everyone has headed to the beach. It isn’t long before the heat casualties start rolling in and lifeguards are inundated with patients. In the mix, an Italian backpacker dislocates his elbow. Lifeguard Yatesy speaks Spanish, a language that shares many words with Italian. Despite Yatesy’s valiant efforts, Alex proves a prickly customer. Lifeguards are also called to a 14-Year-old boy, who has collapsed in the change rooms from a drug overdose. He has taken speed and marijuana. Lifeguards continue to deal with all manner of first aids, but a toe injury sustained by a Scottish backpacker playing soccer has the boys rattled. The bone of the backpacker’s toe has been forced back through the side of his foot. However, the most uncomfortable moment of the day comes when a bloody leech is found on the floor of the tower. It’s fallen off a lifeguard, but no-one knows who. A quick strip reveals just who the victim is.

Australia Day brings all shapes, sizes, colours and creeds to Bondi’s shores. But while it’s a party for most, celebrations turn sour for others. Alcohol fuelled fights break out and large numbers of police arrive to quell the agro and eject trouble makers. Kids use the hot weather and public holiday to full advantage, taking their chances in the pumping surf. The rocks are both dangerous and alluring, until one boy is picked up on the jetski with a major head cut and badly broken nose. And, it’s not only the teenagers coming unstuck – 76 year old Bob was on his way to a date in town when he tripped and fell, badly grazing his face. His rendezvous will have to be postponed until after a visit to the casualty ward. At the end of the long day lifeguards pack up satisfied in the knowledge all swimmers have been accounted for, but an emergency call comes in right at 7pm that two girls are being swept out behind the reef at South Bondi.

Bondi is a party town, and her night of nights is New Year’s Eve. 15,000 revellers descend on the beach front for the Shore Thing concert. At 5am the following morning lifeguards arrive to deal with the drunk, drug-affected and disoriented, all intent on going for a swim. However, later that morning an emergency call comes in that a boat is taking on water at the base of cliffs north of Bondi. Rushing there on the jetski, Mouse and Ben arrive to find 23-year-old Anthony in a hand built boat he bought on ebay for $2.50. New Year’s Eve was to be his maiden voyage, but things went wrong when he decided to head for open water.

All lifeguard hands are on deck to make sure everyone goes home safely, and in Kerrbox’s case, still smiling.
