Holding Back the Waves

Well not quite,  but this incredible set of photos shows how the team huddle together to collectively wade through waves and swell which would otherwise knock a single person over.

On the nearside, the group has formed a 'wedge' to protect the casualty (in the light yellow with white helmet) from the power of the tide. The group on the far side have a floating stretcher and are ready to load the causalty aboard.

As you scroll through the photos, notice how the large wave breaks right over the group, but the stance they have adopted not only keeps the team upright, but protects the causalty from being swept away too.

Photos taken during our Water Rescue Training on Sunday.
