You have to remember that the rescues aren't often photographed. The lifeguards, air/sea crew, air ambulance crews, coastguards etc just rush out to do the job.
Sometimes someone might call the press, who might send a togfa but that would be a very low priority at the critical time - so citizen journalists who'd had a camera handy may be the only source of pics there would be available.
