A Makaha surfer got a chance to thank the lifeguards who saved his life on March 5.

Four lifeguards received the Ocean Safety Merit Award Friday for their actions in saving 44-year-old Fred Klettke in waters off Makaha Beach Park, the Ocean Safety Division said in a news release.

Klettke suffered a surfing injury and was unresponsive and not breathing when lifeguards and fellow surfers pulled him from the water.

Westside lifeguards Bouvey Bradbury, Lt. Mac Hall, Nolan Keaulana, who was off-duty, and Hall Damon performed CPR and were able to revive him

Klettke was at the award ceremony and has resumed surfing.

Saving lives seems to be in the Keaulana blood. Lucky for ocean goers in Makaha.
