The life-guard - John and Yaron

The life-guard - John and Yaron

John and Yaron were on the beach with his brother and seven-year-old niece Charlotte, who was playing in the sea. Charlotte fell off her belly board and began to panic. The more she tried to grab her board, the further away she drifted. Yaron instantly dived into the sea and swam out to Charlotte, who grabbed his collar. The dog then swam with the youngster in tow safely back to shore. John said: “Charlotte was over the moon with Yaron, telling anyone and everyone that he had saved her life. She did have a life jacket on and her dad was not far away in a canoe, but Yaron didn't know that and loved being the action hero!
