“It’s Hard to Describe the Feeling You Get When You Know You’ve Made a Real Difference. In a Weird Way, It’s Just Good to Know You were Needed in that Moment”

On 22 July 2014, a young boy was being swept out to sea by a rip current at Crooklets beach in Bude, North Cornwall, England. He cried for help, and an RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) lifeguard named Joby Wolfenden-Brown paddled out on a rescue board and rescued him. Mr. Wolfenden-Brown had a camera mounted on his safety helmet, and the RNLI uploaded video of the rescue on YouTube. Mr. Wolfenden-Brown said, “We have a strong rip on Crooklets, and we saw the kid drifting that way. But then he got caught in the current and we realized he was in distress so I jumped on the board and went out to get him.” He added, “It’s hard to describe the feeling you get when you know you’ve made a real difference. In a weird way, it’s just good to know you were needed in that moment.”
