While on vacation in Hawaii in 1999 we ran into Michael Newman a real life fireman and life guard who worked on the Baywatch series for the entire run of the show. Alot of those rescue scenes were from actual events that really happened in real life!!!!
He was downtown at Waikiki Beach when we "bumped" into him and he informed us they were shooting Baywatch out at Sandy Beach. Here is our Daughter Stacie with "Newmie" and son C.J. looking on!!!!
Later that day we drove out to Sandy Beach and this is what we saw going on there!!!!Here is lifeguard "Jessie Owens" or her real name is Brooke Burns!!!!!
We stood around and watched for about an hour!!!!!
