There's action on the beach for Nikau Parata (played by Kawakawa Fox-Reo) on today's episode of Home and Away! (1:15pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Newly qualified lifesaver, Nikau is out on beach patrol when a jogger suddenly collapses, gasping for breath...

As Nikau's worried girlfriend, Bella Nixon (Courtney Miller) looks on, Nikau puts his CPR knowledge to the test and manages to save the man's life.

But as the man is taken away in an ambulance, Nikau is annoyed that Surf Club boss, John Palmer (Shane Withington) didn't back him up during the emergency.

John explains that he kept his distance because he could see Nikau had a handle on the situation.

However, Nikau doesn't accept John's explanation and is angry that his boss left him in a SHOCK situation where a man could have died.

Will Nikau QUIT lifesaving over John's apparent lack of support?
