Where there’s a Will
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.
