Boy, 10, in rowboat rescues couple


UPI News Service, 08/03/2012 

The 10-year-old son of an English lifeboatman rowed a half mile to rescue a couple whose boat had overturned off the Devon coast, his father said.

Stuart Craig attached a towline to the boat and rowed a half mile back to safety, the Herald Express reported.

Nigel Craig, who is on a Torbay lifeboat crew, told the Torbay newspaper his son was worried he would be in trouble. He had been told he could only take his boat as far as Fishcombe Cove.

The father said none of the other boaters in the area realized the couple was in trouble. The Coast Guard only learned of the incident when he called to find out how many people had reported the overturned boat.

"Stuart loves his boat, and he'll row here, there and everywhere. I can't get him out of the water," Nigel said, describing himself as "very proud" of his son.
