In an effort to save a youngster from suffering the same tragedy, the guy who died on a Christchurch beach. According to a police spokesperson, emergency services were called to Spencer Park Beach at 12:45 PM on Sunday. The man attempted to save a young child who had either been carried away by a rip or had swum out of their depth in the somewhat larger-than-normal swells, according to Water Safety Chief Executive Daniel Gerrard.
Gerrard claimed that nearby lifeguards were able to save the child and bring the unconscious man to the beach where they attempted to revive him but failed. At 12:42 p.m., St. John Ambulance reported receiving a call about a water-related incident close to Spencer Park. Five clinical managers and four ambulances arrived. Gerrard believed that the additional six beach injuries reported yesterday were the result of separate events brought on by higher-than-normal surf. Gerrard is now advising Kiwi men, who drowning is the most leading cause of death in New Zealand, to exercise greater caution this summer.
“In 2021 we lost 90 people to drowning, and 76 were male. And already this year, 70 families have lost a loved one. More often than not they’re a father, a son, an uncle, a brother or a grandfather,” Gerrard wrote in an open letter to “New Zealand men”. “To Pakeha males in powerboats, Māori men gathering kai underwater, Asian men fishing from rocks, Pasifika men fishing from boats … you guys are consistently over-represented in our drowning tragedies.” “By being aware of the circumstances, keeping an eye on the kids, donning a life jacket, and keeping in mind that you are not as skilled as you were when you were 20. You will make it home at the end of the day.”
