John Jones, a student at Nease High School, said he was surfing Friday when he and his friend, Raekwon, saw two little heads in the water.
"Once we started watching them and seeing them drift out more and more, we realized something was wrong," Jones said. "So we paddled over there and it turned out to be two young kids."
Jones said he found a little girl and a boy managing to keep their heads above water.
"She was just, like, 'I'm about to give up.' She was dead tired," Jones said. "Her muscles, I could tell she was like spaghetti."
Jones was glad he was able to reach the kids.
"I was just wondering how long she has been out here like this," Jones said.
