Three kids under 10 among six rescued from rough surf on the Gold Coast

Lifesavers rescued six people, including three kids, from rough surf on the Gold Coast on Sunday.

Three boys under the age 0f 10 needed saving from rough conditions at Nobby’s Beach around 11am.

Lifesavers had closed the beach due to dangerous surf early on Sunday morning.


A short time after the first rescue, lifesavers were forced to pluck three people from the beach at Surfers Paradise.

Surf Life Saving Qld says the trio became caught in a rip while swimming outside the red and yellow flags.

Today’s rescues come after a dozen swimmers were pulled from the water on the Coast on Saturday.

One man needed to be placed on oxygen after taking in a lot of water when he was swept off a sandbar in Surfers.

Meanwhile, lifesavers were forced to use a jet ski to rescue four teenage girls in Currumbin Creek.

Lifesavers are warning beachgoers to ensure they check the surf conditions before entering the water.

Nobby’s Beach was reopened just before 1pm.
