Off Duty Lifeguard Saves Two During Interview
Occurred on March 29, 2017 / Vero Beach, Florida, USA
Info from Licensor: "I am a photographer and needed a good interview to help promote a company sponsored beach clean-up for Earth Day. I set up a interview with a friend and local lifeguard, Tim Capra. I asked him to bring his family and some boards to make the interview a little more appealing. The interview started after 7:00 pm (after hours, where there is not a lifeguard on duty). In the middle of the interview, Tim began to focus on a specific spot in the currents and paused during his response to the question. Then, he walks off camera and spots the people he saw in the water were caught in a rip current! Tim took off down the beach to grab one of his boards he brought for an interview prop, and began to paddle out to save a young man and his father from drowning. Tim got them on his board and back to shore. He casually walks back to his family, drys off, and then finishes the interview - classic hero."
