Three men and a baby
Three men have been honoured for rescuing a six month old baby girl who fell into a river. What started as a peaceful walk for a grandmother and her baby grandaughter by the River Severn in Shrewsbury turned into a full blown rescue when the pram fell into the water. On hearing the commotion that followed, a quick thinking trio who were passing by immediately sprang into action. Two of the men, James Williams and Andy Hill, jumped into the river while a third, Mickey Bramall, ran to retrieve a lifebuoy. After a struggle with the straps, the baby was freed from the pushchair and brought back to safety on land where first aid was administered. The youngster was then taken by ambulance to the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and has since made a full recovery. In recognition for their actions, the three men were presented with certificates by the Royal Life Saving Society. Well done chaps.
