Local surfer saves three children

Local surfer, 18 year old Michael Colyn, became an instant hero after saving three children from drowning in the ocean at Victoria Bay on Saturday 5 October 2019.

Colyn and a couple of friends visited the beach, getting ready to surf when he spotted something out of the ordinary. A person was caught i a rip current close to the tidal pool. Without hesitation, he swam to the aid of the victim. Although echausted from fighting against the rip, the child managed to hold on to Colyn to reach the shore safely.

Approximtely 10 minutes after the rescue, Colyn noticed two more children caught in a rip current. With the help of two more surfers, they managed to rescue the victims from a certain water grave.

Thank you Michael for your bravery.
