Inflatable swan rescue
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.
