The resigned cricket pulled a striving man in his 60s out of the water after his single individual cruising boat inverted.
Clarke was cruising with VIP account Anthony Bell, previous Waratahs rugby association player Peter Playford and Ryan Burge on Bell’s 36 foot Seafarer at that point.
‘Tragically for a froze man of sharks, I had no real option except to make a plunge the water,’ Clarke, 40, told The Daily Telegraph.
- ‘The weather conditions was deceptive, we could scarcely see through the downpour, it was bucketing down. I’d genuinely really like to confront any bowler on the planet over those circumstances. It was frightening.’
- Playford uncovered that the man had been in the water ‘for some time’ and was floating towards the stones – provoking Clarke to tie a rope around his abdomen and jump into save him.
‘The weather conditions was furious. This person was around 60 and he was beaten down. He upset and was floating towards the stones so we tied a rope around Clarkey’s chest, he made a plunge, got the guy and we got him to somewhere safe and secure,’ Playford said.
While Clarke stripped down to make a plunge and help the man, Bell moved the boat in the water.
Clarke added that the gathering – who were getting back to Rose Bay after a lunch at Spit Bridge – then towed the man’s boat and took more time to the closest ocean side.
