Hero Times Two: Body Surfer Does It Again! Rescue At Sea
An extraordinary sea rescue was caught on video by one Hawaiian tourist saving another, and it's not his first rescue! INSIDE EDITION has the story.
Extraordinary video showing a dramatic rescue off the coast of Hawaii has surfaced.
Daren Jenner can be seen body surfing in the video, when he comes upon a snorkeler who is in a state of total panic.
The 55-year-old tourist immediately took control of the situation, telling the snorkler to calm down, saying, "Catch your breath, okay?"
Jenner says the snorkeler, ironically also a tourist from California, looked terrified. He was also in a state of utter exhaustion and was drifting out to sea.
Jenner told Good Morning America, "You could just see the look on his face, that look of terror. A look like, 'I think I'm dying.' "
The rescue was captured on Jenner's GoPro camera, which he had strapped to the paddle on his hand.
And how lucky was this? It turns out Jenner's a retired paramedic and volunteer lifeguard. So he knew exactly what to do.
And get this—11 years ago he was a guest on Good Morning America after saving the life of a beachgoer who suffered a heart attack in the water. Today, Jenner returned to GMA for his second round as a hero.
The snorkeler was winded and tired but not injured. And he had only words of praise for Daren Jenner, a hero times two.
Jenner said, "I'm definitely not a hero. The full-time lifeguards, the rescue swimmers for the Coast Guard, those are heros."
