A teenager suffering from what appeared to be hypothermia was rescued from the White Rock breakwater earlier this month.
Crew members with the Crescent Beach Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue were dispatched to the scene just before 6 p.m. July 4, after a citizen reported seeing a kiteboarder waving for help.
An extensive search did not locate anyone in the water, however, as the crew neared the end of White Rock pier, they were directed to a group of teenagers on the breakwater who were concerned about a 17-year-old.
Fire Chief Phil Lemire said a report on the incident indicates the girl started having trouble after swimming in the area for a little while.
With assistance from White Rock firefighters, she was transferred to the pier and to the care of paramedics.
