Pro Australian surfer Mikey Wright has been caught on camera saving a person swept away in a strong current and rough waves in Hawaii.
Wright was sitting on the beachfront, believed to be at Oahu’s North Shore, when he witnessed a beachgoer being swept away after a set cleaned up the beach. They were quickly overwhelmed in the current.
Fellow beachgoers could be seen attempting to reach the person when Wright is heard to say “He’s gonna need to get saved”.
“You can’t save him,” a woman said back to Wright, before the Aussie hands over his phone, which is still filming, jumps the fence to the sand and runs into the surf.
