A NUDE #sunbather saves the day. She was dubbed a “Bikini hero” for saving a family of three from drowning in a rip current – while topless.
“Not all heroes wear capes, some of them don’t even wear bikini tops”– One of Jessica friends said.
Jessica 28-year-old revealed — I was making the most of the sunny weather: “It was just after 3pm and the tide was coming in. I decided to go for a final rip before going home.

“I was topless in the sea when I saw two teenage girls struggling to swim near rocks, their mum ran in to help them and she started struggling too.
“I swam towards them and thought ‘oh s**t’ as I realised how strong the rip current was.
“I was struggling myself and they were panicking, the situation was scary.
They were panicking so much — “I was going to tell them to float, which is the best thing you can do in a rip current, but that couldn’t have worked.
Jessica said: “The mum said ‘aren’t you strong?’ afterwards – I’m not sure where the strength came from.” – probably from my performances in Cornwall’s Rogue Theatre.
“I subsequently pulled them all on to the beach.” — I was grateful that they were all holding hands, so I grabbed one of their hands.
People watching the rescue may have caught more than an eyeful.
The beach does not have a lifeguard and is known for its rip currents.
Jessica said:”It’s lucky I was there. It’s really weird thinking it happened. I can’t quite grasp it.”
