In­flat­able swan res­cue

First News - - HOME NEWS -

A nine-year-old girl who was blown out to sea while rid­ing an in­flat­able swan was res­cued by a teenage pad­dle­boarder who spot­ted her. Coast­guards in North Ayr­shire praised him for his quick think­ing, say­ing his ac­tions had avoided a tragic end­ing. The teen man­aged to get the girl onto his board, but was un­able to get back to the shore him­self. They were both res­cued by Troon Lifeboat and re­united with their fam­i­lies.
