RNLI lifeguards rescued a boy who had been dragged away from Crooklets Beach in Bude, Cornwall, in a very strong rip current while bodyboarding.
He was heard screaming for help so lifeguard Joby Wolfenden-Brown paddled out on a rescue board and grabbed the boy, who was exhausted and clearly in a lot of distress. He was brought back to shore safely and reunited with his family.
You can't really see what happens, but you know it's heroic.
That's State Trooper Eric Devers, who leaps over a guardrail to save a truck driver that had crashed off the highway in Miami County, Ohio. According to the video's description:
An officer with the Ohio State Highway Patrol was honored this week for saving a semi-truck driver's life back in April. Dashcam footage just released shows trooper Eric Devers arrive at the scene of a crash and immediately sprint toward the driver. The trooper found the man still belted into his seat. Shortly after, his eyes rolled back into his head and he stopped breathing, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
The truck driver apparently had an atrial fibrillation, which is a quivering or irregular heartbeat that caused him to pass out while driving.
And hey! How cool is CPR? You should learn it yourself and become a hero like that guy there.
Reza Baluchi was attempting to run from Pompano Beach, FL to Bermuda in an inflatable bubble. Although the Coast Guard officially warned him not to make the attempt due to dangerous water conditions, he set off on his journey anyway. Since he was making the journey totally alone, the coast guard had to save him.
This isn't his first attempt, he was also rescued in 2014 during a similar trip:
