Christchurch's police communications centre had no shortage of volunteers when units were called to assist at a water rescue at Sumner Beach yesterday.
The call was for the rescue was of a woman in her 20s who had walked naked into the surf.
A police spokesman said the woman drew "quite a crowd" when she stripped off and took a dip about 3.20pm. She was reportedly drunk.
When the call for units to attend went out, 35 responded.
"There were a fair few volunteering.
"It was amazing how many people wanted to go and assist," he joked.
"But it was only two [that went]."
The Sumner Lifeboat was called, but were stood down when she came out on her own accord, he said.
No charges were expected to be laid.
