Lifeguard’s quick action saves visitor

Had it not been for the brave efforts of Jamaal Hinds, a Canadian visitor’s third visit to Barbados most likely would have been his last.

Gary Billiard is today counting his lucky stars that Hinds, a lifeguard stationed at Accra Beach, rescued him after he got into difficulties on Tuesday at the popular South Coast beach.

The 61-year-old resident of Nova Scotia told the WEEKEND NATION he had been coming to the island for the past three years and was accustomed going to Accra for a swim.

However, he said he was not prepared for the rip tide which almost claimed his life. (RB)
