Fish 0 Posted April 18, 2021 Share Posted April 18, 2021 A couple put their lives at risk to help a cold and lifeless man clinging to his jetski off the coast of Northland. Husband and wife Lewis and Alyssa Allen were sailing through Bream Bay, near Whangārei, when they heard a mayday call over the radio on Saturday afternoon. Knowing they were only about five kilometres out and the only vessel nearby, Lewis wrote down the coordinates and steered his yacht north, against choppy sea and strong winds. Spotting the man from near that location, but knowing their yacht couldn’t reach him, Alyssa didn’t think twice before leaping into the freezing water to bring him back to safety. https://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/local-news/300279730/couple-jump-into-water-to-rescue-man-clinging-to-jetski-for-two-hours-near-whangrei Quote Link to post Share on other sites
