Going beyond the brief

At ICM we pride ourselves on going "beyond the brief".  One of our Engineers, Aaron Salyer, supervising a coastal protection project at Ullal in India recently put this culture into action on a personal level.  During 2 days of rough seas, while about 100 non-swimmers of bystanders and the work crew watched, Aaron rescued 3 persons from drowning over the two days.  Getting them ashore was just the start, he then successfully applied CPR.  3 lives were saved.  He is a good surf swimmer but it still took huge effort and risk.  We are very proud of his efforts - well done, Aaron!
