Duty Officers Cole and Sue are called to a Gold Coast beach at 7 pm because an 18-year-old swimmer has gone missing. His distraught parents soon realize that the boy has most likely drowned. The search resumes at dawn with jet boats, jet skis, the lifesaver helicopter and IRBs but the conditions are appalling.

In the middle of a mass rescue, an IRB flips while trying to avoid a collision with a jet ski. One of the lifesavers, Kenny, is carried motionless from the water. Distressed colleagues rush to help him and wait with him until he is taken to hospital.

Meanwhile, the search for the missing boy is called off because of the wild conditions.

In Sydney, lifesavers at Newport Beach are preparing for their annual 2km ocean swim. With around 400 competitors, extra lifesavers have been put on duty to help out.

Just as the swim starts a warm north easterly wind comes through, blowing in a mass of marine stingers. The lifesavers try to warn the swimmers, but it’s too late. Many competitors have been stung but one man in particular has a potentially life threatening problem. He has taken a blue bottle sting to the mouth.

Conditions are rough at Surfers Paradise beach in Queensland. Lifesavers have already performed one multiple rescue, when a flash rip wreaks more havoc. With lifesavers busy attempting to rescue many people at once, a young boogie boarder helps keep two girls afloat until a big wave swamps them and one of the girls disappears.

In Sydney, the Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter is called to help a boat which has lost steering in rough conditions. With no radio on board the boat, the only way to communicate is using a mobile phone, which keeps dropping out. On top of that, fog at sea level means poor visibility, creating big problems for the people on the boat identifying where exactly they are.
Back in Surfers’ Paradise, a little boy goes missing. The beach is closed as the lifesavers search the water, watched by his frantic grandmother and teary mother.

Three very enthusiastic Greek surf lifesavers are on Sydney’s Narrabeen beach to learn from the best – Surf Life Saving Australia. But they soon discover it isn’t as easy as it looks.
