Broadwindsor Guide rescues her Sister

Broadwindsor would really like to give praise to a young Girl Guide who on Saturday, 29th 2020 August rescued her sister after she fell off the slipway at West Bay and into the harbour.

The 2 girls had wandered from the pier, where they were crabbing with their family to fill their bucket with water. On doing so the younger girl slipped and fell into the harbour.  She was unable to touch the bottom and also unable to reach to get up out of the water. Her sister, Eleanor (from 1st Broadwindsor Guides) called for help and proceeded to try and get her sister out of the water. Eleanor said “It was scary because my sister went under a few times but I knew that I had to try and pull her up out of the water or she could drown.”  Thankfully Eleanor was able to pull her younger sister to safety by the time her family arrived to help.
