Where there’s a Will

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

UP AT Co­bram they are call­ing for teenager Will Slat­terie to re­ceive a brav­ery award.

Slat­terie re­cently risked his own life to save the lives of a Shep­par­ton mother, her child and two grand­chil­dren from drown­ing at Thomp­son’s beach on the Mur­ray River two weeks ago.

Co­bram Courier edi­tor An­drew Mole said Will’s ac­tions were the ‘‘stuff of self­less sac­ri­fice and he has stamped himself as a gen­uine hero’’.

Will was with a group of friends and as the old­est he took it on himself to make the res­cues af­ter hear­ing the faint calls for help.
