Luke Bradnam is a weatherman for Australia’s Channel Nine but, on Friday, he also became a hero.

Shortly after a live broadcast to report on the massive swells and dangerous conditions in the Narrowneck area in Quensland, weatherman, Luke Bradnam was called over by a boogie boarder who noticed a floating body in the water.

With the camera's still rolling, Bradnam didn’t hesitate to take off his clothes and help the guy in the water.

The Daily Mail reports that Bradnam first thought the boogie boarder was in need of help, but when he got closer to him, he realised that he’s trying to get a body out of the water.

Together they managed to recover the body of 32-year-old Jake Jacobs, a British gym manager, who was reported missing on Thursday. Straight after the incident Bradnam then continued his live broadcast through an interview with the anchors in the studio.

Several beaches have since been opened again after two more deaths were reported over the weekend.
