    Videos: Two Australian Lifeguards Ride 3,000KM For Suicide Prevention

    Two Australian lifeguards – Trent “Maxi” Maxwell, and Jesse Pollock – have participated in the retrieval of a dozen bodies from Bondi Beach’s notorious “Gap” cliff face not far from the main beach. Sadly, each of these deaths were of victims – all under the age of 30 – of suicide. In fact, suicide rates continue to grow in Australia for youths, accounting for the single-largest cause of death. Amazingly, 30-percent of youths aged between 12-to-25 have admitted to contemplating suicide.

    Only weeks before filming, Jesse lost one of his own friends to suicide. Wanting to help prevent more unnecessary deaths and “send the message to young people that it’s OK to seek help,” the two embarked on a grueling 2,500km (1,550-mile) open ocean ride on jet skis. Earlier last year, a crowd sourcing effort was launched to raise $100,000 to fund the project. With only a few weeks remaining, the two hit their goal and generated over $105,000.

    Thanks Kevin, for the update. Glad to see someone cares. It is a sad day when a country's young adults check out.
