Surfer Saves Boy At Soldiers

Serious But Stable In Gosford.

Surfer Saves Boy At Soldiers

Praise for a Soldiers Beach surfer, who may have helped save the life of a teen boy in the waves overnight.

Police have been told a woman alerted him to the 17-year-old's ordeal, after she herself got stuck in a rip and the teen jumped in to save her.

It's understood the surfer dived down several metres to get the boy, starting CPR on his surfboard before taking him back to shore.

The 36-year-old managed to get water out of the boy's lungs before paramedics came, taking him to Gosford Hospital where he remains serious but stable.
