Young men save life

Kiama Council is to formally acknowledge the quick acting efforts of Year 9 Kiama High students Jye Mitchell and Riley Cookson-Davis, who saved the life of a man at Kendalls Beach in March.

The pair came to the rescue of a male swimmer floating face down and lifeless in the water. They brought him back to shore and with the assistance of an off-duty doctor were able to administer CPR until paramedics arrived.

Without their efforts, the man would have died.
