She wasn’t wearing a Baywatch swimsuit — actually she wasn’t wearing anything up top at all — but a woman in England still managed to save the day and some struggling swimmers.

Jessica Layton, 28, from Cornwall, U.K., was sunbathing sans top on naturist beach Pedn Vounder near Porthcurno on Tuesday when she went in for a short swim.

“It was just after 3 p.m. and the tide was coming in. I decided to go for a final dip before going home,” Layton told Cornwall Live. “I was topless in the sea when I saw two young women struggling to swim near rocks. Another member of the family ran in to help them and she started struggling, too.

“I swam towards them and thought ‘oh s**t’ as I realized how strong the rip current was. I was struggling myself and they were panicking, which wasn’t ideal in a situation like that.”

She ended up saving two sisters and a cousin. Afterward, one of Layton’s friends said: “Not all heroes wear capes, some of them don’t even wear bikini tops.”

“I was going to tell them to float, which is the best thing you can do in a rip current, but they were panicking so much it wouldn’t have worked. They were all holding hands, so I grabbed one of their hands and pulled them all on to the beach,” Layton said.

Layton is apparently a regular on the nudist beach and is an actor and a singer. She’s just glad she hadn’t gone fully nude or she would have put on an even bigger show.

“Fortunately, I’d just put my bikini bottoms on before it happened. It’s a classic — of course I was going to be topless when something like this happens.

“One of the women said ‘aren’t you strong?’ afterwards — I’m not sure where the strength came from.”

While Layton has been rattled by the incident — “I can’t quite grasp it,” she said, her friends are delighted.

One put a post on Facebook saying: “Local hero saves family from certain death with her norks out!”
