VIDEO: School Boy Rescues Pensioner From Drowning
7:02am 19th November 2014
A thirteen year old Cornish lad is hailed a hero after saving a pensioner from drowning in Polperro.
Chris Puckey saw the pensioner plunge into the harbour at the weekend.
Margaret Davidson is visiting from Cumbria after a hip replacement - and admits she thought that was it.
Luckily for her quick-thinking Chris was working on a boat nearby and saw it happen.
He and another local grabbed a boat and managed to get her to safety.
Chris said: "I didn't really know what to do at first but then instinct kicked in and I knew we had to go and get her in a decent boat, because she didn't look like she would be able to grab hold of a rope or anything so we could have pulled her in.
"She could have been face down in the water or she could just have floated off. It's quite scary really.
"She said, 'Thank you very much - you're a superstar.' She gave me a big hug and kiss the next day."
Margaret Davidson said: "I thought that was it. I tried not to panic as I knew that wouldn't help.
"I can't believe they got me out, it can't have been easy. That little lad was marvellous."7:02am 19th November 2014
