A lifeguard has rescued a rock fisherman on the Central Coast – all before clocking on for a day’s work.
The 50-year-old angler was swept out to sea at Avoca Beach shortly after 8am.
Luckily, the Sydney man was wearing a lifejacket, and the lifeguard spotted him… bringing him to shore on a jetski.
He was treated at the scene for minor cuts and bruises before being taken to Gosford Hospital.
Police say it’s timely reminder to all fishermen about the importance of wearing a lifejacket.
