Gordons Bay Clovelly drowning of dog lover Bev Webb and teenagers battle to save her
The desperate battle to save the life of a devoted dog lover has been revealed after her unconscious body was pulled from the water at a Sydney beauty spot.
Bev Webb, 47, died after she appeared to have a medical episode in the sea at picturesque Gordons Bay in Clovelly on Sydney’s eastern beaches on Monday.
He and his friend immediately pulled her from the sea but she was already unconscious and appeared to have stopped breathing.
‘The waves were washing over her and she was being submerged so we had to move her onto a rock,’ the teen from Mascot in Sydney’s east told Daily Mail Australia.
‘There were three teenage girls there too, but one guy checked her pulse and tried to see if she was breathing, but there was no sign of life.
‘She wasn’t responsive at all so we started shouting for people to call the emergency services.’
Aleksei learned basic CPR at school and put it into action, recalling instructions to use the rhythm of the Bee Gees song Staying Alive to try to keep her heart beating.
‘When we saw she wasn’t breathing, we realised we needed to do CPR so I just started doing chest compressions,’ he said.
