“His daughter was struggling to get on to the sand bar so I reached down, grabbed her arm and put my arm up to Hugh to make a chain to pull us up on the sand bar,” he said.

“That’s what you do with any family out there.”

Dan Conn said he helped drag the children to the sand bar, but Oscar was again carried out by the current.

“I think he was under a bit of pressure with the two kids at once but he was pretty cool, calm and collected, as Hugh always is I suppose,” he said.

Mr Conn said Jackman was “definitely a bit of a superdad, superhero, and he’s a super bloke too.”

Lifeguards and lifesavers then assisted, bringing the teenager to safety.
