Thanks for Potato Point rescue

The Beagle Editor, We would like to thank the men who rescued a young girl from a rip at Potato Point on 26 January. This slight 8 year old girl was swept off the beach into the rip and was being carried around the rocks at the southern end of the beach. She had a boogie board, which thank goodness, she never let go off. Luckily, a young, strong, fit family man saw it happening and swam out to her and and got her to the rocks where an elderly man with some difficulty lifted the girl out of the sea. The young man followed with the little girl's boogie board. The young girl, with only a few grazes from the rocks, was handed over to her grandmother, with much praise from the kind, brave men about how brave she had been. Undoubtedly these men saved her life. We were told the rip had swept two grown men around the point onto the next beach the day before. We cannot thank these men enough, especially the selfless way the young man leapt to the rescue without a thought for his own safety. We cannot think what today would feel like if those men had not been there. Name and address provided but withheld by request
