Lifeguard pulls man through one mile of high surf, shark waters

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) _ An off-duty lifeguard swam through more than a mile of turbulent surf and shark infested waters off Oahu's Leeward coast to rescue a young military man last night.

Bouvey Bradbury heard the man and two friends screaming for help shortly after sunset in an area where waves were about 6 feet.

Bradbury pulled the man ashore for almost a mile to a surf spot known as Second Dip, where he was finally able to come ashore.

The man was taken to Wahiawa General Hospital in fair condition.

Jim Howe, who is chief operations officer for the city's Ocean Safety Division, says the rescue was one of the more heroic things he's heard of during his career.
