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.
