WILDWOOD, N.J. (CBS) –– When lifeguards at the beach in North Wildwood aren’t busy saving people — they’re busy saving boats.

It happened near 2nd Street Beach.

Using a little manpower, nearby lifeguards worked together to stabilize the boat which began to tip over as the waves came crashing in.

Once the boat was steadied, a sea tow boat was able to pull it back out to sea.
