A quick-thinking family has saved a group of tourists from drowning on Sydney’s northern beaches.

A group of Argentinian nationals, aged in their 20s, became caught in a rip at South Curl Curl Beach last night.

Their calls for help were heard by the Campbell family, who were having dinner close by.

The family jumped into action, with 14-year-old twins Angus and David being crucial to the rescue effort.

While emergency services were on their way, David grabbed a foam surfboard and paddled out to the surfers.

His efforts helped the struggling swimmers get to shore.

Surf Life Saving NSW CEO Steven Pearce tells Deborah Knight the rescue was “remarkable”.

“It just shows the skills of surf lifesavers can be used at any time, whether they’re on patrol or whether they’re at home having dinner at 8pm at night.”
