” Together we saved the guys life and I was really fortunate to be the first guy there…every second, every minute counts for saving lives and he’s very lucky…. we always have to say thank you to the force above.” 6X World Body Board Champ, Guilherme Tamega. Be aware that this video may prove disturbing to you. It’s the real deal.
North Shore lifeguards pulled an unconscious body from the water Thursday March 3rd.
After New Jersey bodyboarder, Dylan Mcginn pulled into a barrel with no exit and resurfaced unconscious, six times bodyboard world champion turned North Shore lifeguard, Guilherme Tamega (who was off-duty at the time) was first on the scene. Pulling Dylan to safety assisted by Pipe resident, Jamie O’Brien, Tamega performed CPR on the beach with the help of the rest of the North Shore Lifeguards Association.
On his Instagram, Guilherme had this to say on the rescue: “Today I was glad to be on the right place, at the right time. Rescued unconscious bodyboarder Dylan from New Jersey at Pipeline followed by @whoisjob and my awesome lifeguards partners Dorr, Sack, Zigler and DJ. Proud to be part of @northshorelifeguardassociation.”
Hawaii News Now have reported that Dylan regained a pulse and was breathing on his own before being taken to hospital in serious condition. Once again the heroic actions of a true waterman in the right place at the right time have saved a life at Pipeline and for Dylan, we wish a full and fast recovery.
