Members of the public are being urged not to enter the water when red flags are posted at beaches and to listen to the advice of lifeguards.
This comes after lifeguards at Browne’s Beach, on Bay Street, St Michael, were pressed into action yesterday to rescue four people, including a seven-year-old visitor, from the choppy waters.
Head of the Department of Lifeguard Services at the National Conservation Commission, Dave Bascombe, expressed serious concern over people, both visitors and locals, disobeying the instructions of lifeguards and proceeding into the waters, and thus endangering their lives.
These sentiments were echoed by lifeguard and swim and first aid instructor Christopher Gajadhar who cautioned that with the inclement weather, people, especially children, should stay away from the water. (BGIS)Please read the full story in today’s DAILY NATION, or in the eNATION edition.
