Evan Geiselman rescued after serious wipeout at Pipeline

Surfer Evan Geiselman has been rescued by athletes including Australian surfer Mick Fanning after a massive wipe-out at Hawaii's world-famous Pipeline surf break.

The 22-year-old Floridian was pulled from the water unconscious at Ehukai beach on the North Shore of O'ahu, where the swell was four-to five times overhead, on Sunday afternoon local time.

Professional bodyboarder Andre Botha came to the ASP World Championship Tour hopeful's immediate rescue before other surfers and lifeguards sprinted to the water's edge to help the man onto the beach.
