The dramatic rescue of a female surfer

Lifeguards filmed rescuing surfer stuck in notorious swell off Sydney's Bronte Beach

Witnesses described the terrifying moment the surfer was washed off her board and towards the unforgiving rocks known as "The Twins". 

The surfer was stuck in swell too powerful to escape on Thursday that pushed her dangerously close to the cliffs.
