49m 41s

Rip currents can be found on any beach that has waves breaking across a surf zone. On average they cause more deaths in Australia per year then cyclones, floods and sharks combined, and are responsible for most beach rescues. Rip Current Heroes, narrated by Australian actor Rhys Muldoon who had a near-death experience in a rip current, explores deeply moving stories of rip rescue, survival and tragedy. The program explains how to spot rip currents which are masters of camouflage that can hide tremendous power within seemingly calm waters.
