Bondi Rescue follows the work of the elite professional #Lifeguards who patrol Australia’s busiest beach. This is Australia’s real life Baywatch! Taking the viewers on their journey through mass rescues, drownings, resuscitations, shark sightings, and all number of the weird and wonderful experiences Bondi Beach dishes up.
In #BondiRescue the audience sees the action through the eyes of real characters and #lifeguards like Hoppo, Deano, Reidy, Jesse, Maxi, Whippet and Harries, as they catch thieves, perform CPR, treat #seizures make drug busts, break up fights, and even handle a navy bomb that washes ashore one afternoon. Every year throws up new and completely unexpected challenges, and how lifeguards adapt is what makes Bondi Rescue a show that’s about much more than swimmers being saved in the surf.

    Seems like anything can happen down at Bondi. Lifeguards have to be prepared for anything and always ready to act! (Check out some of their best rescues here -

    Please use the term " seizure ", not " fit". . A " fit" is a tantrum! Not a medical condition.

  • Phoebe

    Bless Angelica, there is nothing worse than feeling like shit and also feeling like a burden!

  • karenina

    glad that the lifeguards know exactly what to do when things like that happens. they are saviors.

    I don’t know how it is in Australia but I had a “fit” when i was in high school here in America and the school called my mother and the paramedics. When they got to me and after they me gave oxygen they recommended I go to the hospital but I knew our financial situation and lack of good insurance was going to make the hospital visit a big strain on my family. So I said no. My mom asked me why and I just told her that I was feeling much better and just needed to rest. I knew she would have made me go if I told her the real reason but I didn’t want her to be more stressed than she already was. Thankfully I didn’t have another one that day and I got a check up at the doctor the next day (much much cheaper visit than the hospital) and they gave me a new medication. Maybe that’s why the girl didn’t want to go to the hospital. Especially because she’s from South Africa and not Australia and might not have the necessary healthcare coverage for a hospital visit. It’s not always because the person is stubborn or thinks they know more than the professionals.

    If someone has never seen or had direct contact with someone who has seizures, the sight of it can be really terrifying. I think the lifeguards handled it very well.

  • Edotrin

    The guy screms "help me" is so ironic lmao. They are literally helping him at the moment.

    • Edotrin

      @kiera__willow yeah it is. But its still ironic.

    • kiera__willow

    15:50 Even censored, I can see she is very in shock, panic, and like lots of emotions...

  • derobotlab

    Man... I thought lifeguarding was just telling kids to not run, and saving drowning people. Turns out, lifeguarding is that, with an additional saving people from seizures, keeping calm even when its so intense, going on hot pursuits on buggies to catch thieves, trying not to injure yourself... damn. Respect to you kind, and strong people. Appreciate lifeguards more than ever now.

    Poor South African woman, she either had no travel insurance or was a real boeremeisie - don't worry, I'm fine - there's a resilience that you don't find in other people in the world. Medical insurance costs lots in SA -t he equivalent of between $500 and $2200 per month, unless you want to be treated in a government hospital which are mostly ineffective places run by the most constitutionally correct, best law-instituting, most welcoming and friendly, yet least capable people, of running a democratic society on earth.

    For seizures: some epileptics do have a seizure card on them that tells you what is allowed and what is not. Some are allowed to seize freely. Should be looking for a seizure card. If none, treat it like a first time seizure and call an ambo.

    Felt so bad for the guys when they were trying to help Mick. It must have felt horrible to be helping someone but they are terrified of you. The poor man was confused and seemed like he literally thought they were going to kill him. Just screaming in pure terror for help while he actually was getting help. Sad for everyone.

    i have epilepsy and that lady comforting the young man who had just had a seizure made me emotional. i can only think of a couple people who have actually helped me before, during, and after a seizure- most people either don’t know what to do or they have the wrong information and do way more harm than good. the way the lady reacted was so compassionate and understanding- it’s really important to know basic first aid!

    im scared of that i hate the beach now cuz its scary

  • Wezlo

    That Pete guy was a true warrior “Back to war” When he first came to the tower I thought maybe he had communication issues but once he came around I realised his medical condition even just strips him of the simple ability to speak etc, glad he went to the tower for help and the genuine look of concern in the lifeguards face was humbling.

    The diabetic one is scary to me because my girlfriend has type 1 and I always fear one day something bad could happen. I always make sure she has insulin and sugar on her.


    Honeslty i watch this show and SMH at 80% of the people that need saving. The main Issue is IF YOU CANT SWIM why are you going in the water Alone or with people who also can't swim and why are you going deep like over your waist.. DO u think this is a pool. Do you not Respect Nature. Or is this total stupidity. When traveling do your DD. Thats do your Due diligence do some research. Try To Figure the Rules like swimming between the Flags. DO your research before you do something that Is OBVIOUSLY dangerous when you see other people being saved. SERIOUSLY. what is wrong with some people. Totally oblivious to there surroundings. NEVER CEASE TO AMAZE. So many stupid people In this world.

      I mean you don't need the lifeguards to see this because how would you feel if they said this on your video? I was always told I should think before I speak because it can hurt other people's feelings. Not all people are stupid btw.

    My older brother is a type one diabetic we found out he had diabetes in 2018 in September but he's all good now but I know how u feel after a dramatic scene ur just like WOW we just saved someone's life and so I know how scary it could be I mean me being a little sister to a type one diabetic brother ur like "I can't believe what's happening right now" So I really do feel for u guys because someone that's almost drowned and u started doing CPR they could die right I front of u I mean im just lucky enough that I still have my brother

    As an epileptic who finds my seizures embarrassing, I relate to Angelica sooo much. I've scared my parents so much, I've peed myself, I've stopped breathing, and not to mention the utter humiliation of when I pull my emergency meds out of my bag for school and have everyone ask what they're for. Funny story on my second seizure my friend's mom who was a first responder was actually the first person I saw when I finally came to. That night in the ER was fun, she stopped by and prayed for my health.

    These lifeguards need more medical training cause they made so many mistakes. Someone falls and hits their head you don't move them and take them for a walk. If someone passes out and your trying to get the to wake you rub the sternum.

    That Angelica chick - she felt soo bad about needing their help! Poor thing. She is so embarrassed and probably wants to crawl in a hole. I Just want to give her a hug. I know the feeling of extreme guilt when people have to go out of their way to help you medically and even though you know it's exactly what you need, it's the last thing you want. Hope she is ok.

  • trullsis

    For someone who have epellepsi myself i know how scary it can be to just "wake up" and there is like 7 people standing around. So i can only imagion how horribel it have to be to not remember and know what cauze it, atleast i know i have epellepsi.
