Hero at Ten Years Old

A ten year old Devon boy is being honoured for saving two stranded sailors.

Brixham pupil Stuart Crang has been given the first ever Certificate of Valour awarded by Torbay Council for his "incredible composure and extreme presence of mind" when he went to the aid of two sailors off Brixham.

It happened in July when he was rowing off Fishcombe.  He spotted the sailors struggling in the water after their dinghy kept capsizing. It  filled with water and they couldn't get back into it. He rowed out to them, gave them a line,  and  towed them to safety.
