Myself my sister and another person both nurses were at the scene .I took her out of the water with support from another person..these nurses fought to save her life before the excellent paramedics arrived on the scene.Lifeguards as I observed prior were not paying attention to the water .lessons should learnt better training needed and also no defibrillator at a busy beach until the paramedics arrived.
