A fisherman's companion

Taking proper safety precautions, quick thinking backed by education and a swift response from volunteer lifeguards and emergency services may have saved a fisherman swept off the rocks at Piha on Saturday.   

One such precaution was that the fisherman was not alone, he and his companion were well prepared, with a cell phone to call 111 and both were wearing lifejackets.
