Sean Richardson rescues a drowning woman with his kite

Sean, a kitesurfing buddy who frequents South Melbourne beach and environs, rescued a drowning woman using his kitesurfing gear.  The woman, who had apparently fallen oft a jet ski, was floating face down when Sean kitesurfed out to her.

He was able to drag her in to shore using the kite controlled by one arm, and his other arm around the woman.  Well done Sean.

More details and a video interview are available in this article:
