Two lifeguards who recently saved a drowning woman, are appealing to beachgoers to adhere to all warning signs.

Kyle Edwards and Ralston Duke expressed their concern after a near-drowning at Batts Rock Beach, St Michael, on Monday afternoon.

It was the first day for the new 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. beach hours as part of Government’s ease on COVID-19 restrictions. For about a month, access to beaches was only allowed from 6 a.m. and 9 a.m.

The lifeguards recalled during an interview yesterday that there were clear skies on the evening of the rescue. But it was windy and they said the sea swells were larger than usual, which resulted in the rescue of one woman who was said to be in her 60s. (TG)
