    If a person...doesn't know how to swim why would they go so far out in the Ocean like that? That makes no sense. Also...that's why every parent should provide there children with swimming lesson at a toddler age.

    Man come on, you saw someone there and few seconds later he wasn’t there anymore,isn’t it enough to go after him?? The lifeguard said “maybe” I just missed him bla bla bla, bro it’s someone’s life we talking about, a “maybe” is so much more than enough to go there. Am I wrong?

    just shows how dangerous the surf is. even under the very well trained & extremely caring lifeguards watchful eyes, drownings can happen so fast. the lifeguard saw him & tried to get to him, but it happened so fast. i feel so bad for the family. here is a family who JUST emigrated to australia for a better life & on a beautiful day at the beach, he loses his life & the family is changed forever. the lifeguards on boards, jet skis, helicopters & the couldnt ask for a better response on a rescue. so sorry.

    As sad as this is he took a risk and it didn't pay off. Swimming in front of a "dangerous currents" sign and ignoring all the "swim between the flags" signs, while incapable of Swimming is quite the risk.

    I think Asians should just stay away from water from now on... that may be the smart thing to do. I never really thought about that until I started watching Bondi and seeing that in almost every episode, they are rescuing Asians. I don't know why they can't swim but idk why they go into the water at that point.

    You guys MUST HAVE a camera drone charged, with backup battery, ready to fly within a minute of spotting something like this. Having a chopper coming 3 hours later doesn't cut it. Heartbreaking for everyone involved, especially for the lifeguard that saw the man in his last seconds above water. That's when he should have used that drone. Australia is also plagued by sharks, they should have these devices at every lifeguard post ready to protect the public in such events.

    I freaking LOVE that the lifeguard said if you’re still feeling bad about it by tomorrow it’s not a sign of weakness to reach out and talk to someone. There is anonymous phone lines etc. Like that’s amazing especially coming from a man because generally men struggle with expressing themselves unfortunately and for asking for help. What kind supportive people.

    Bondi lifeguards don’t get enough appreciation. Some people are only alive today because of the boys in blue. They are always looking out to see if people are ok. They don’t give up if some one has been dead for at least 5 mins. They won’t stop until they know they have passed for ever. They all deserve a round of applause for being such amazing people. They make sure no one will be attacked by a shark but how are they meant to do that is the helicopter is just filming a shark not reporting it. Respect the camera man also for not putting a camera in peoples faces that are in pain or faint. RESPECT THE BOYS IN BLUE

    You guys did an awesome job, truly. Unfortunately, drowning in my state is too common. People come and enter the water, without knowing how to swim, or the dangers of the oceans. They are beautiful, they are magnificent, but they are also deadly. Please be safe this summer folks. Take every precaution, listen to lifeguards, and watch each other in the water. You can become exhausted very quickly. Stay safe! ♥️🙏

    A few lessons to learn from this tragic event, hopefully it will mean that his death was not in vain 1. Do not go in the open ocean if you cannot swim 2. If you get into difficulty do not splash around and struggle, remain calm. 3. If you see someone you know go in the water then watch them no matter their ability.

    Always swim in groups of two or more. Don't expect strangers to look out for you in the water. Most definetly don't go into deep water knowing you can't swim.

    I think this tragic event highlights how technologically deficient surf lifesaving resources are. Having to go to Icebergs Club just to get up high enough to look down into the ocean? Waiting on a full scale rescue chopper for the same task? Where was the drone that could have been up and running inside of 5 mins?

    So easy to lose your footing with waves, then end up in a rip. Ocean swimming outside the flags is an accident waiting to happen for the inexperienced. Without the boys in blue there would be many more deaths on Aussie beaches. Tourists or new comers have no idea of the danger.
