GOA: Two male tourists, aged 24 and 27, were rescued by lifeguards off Vagator beach. Drishti sources said when the two tourists had entered the water at 3pm, the lifeguard on duty had requested them to return to shore as the sea was rough. Since the tourists refused to come out of the water, the lifeguard stayed on guard.
Sources added the tourists were pulled into the sea after they ventured deeper. The lifeguard called for back-up over the radio and two lifeguards rushed with a rescue tube and board. One of them had swallowed large amounts of water, which lifeguards helped expel and oxygen was administered.
