The water skiing instructor who jumped into the out of control speedboat and saved the lives of Nick Milligan's wife Victoria and their three children, spoke for the first time about the incident today.
Charlie Toogood, who volunteered with the RNLI at Rock lifeboat station for eight years said there were "many heroes" at the incident.
In a statement released through the RNLI, he said:
"There were many 'heroes' in this tragic incident all of whom did a remarkable job in difficult circumstances.
However, now is a time solely to reflect on thebereaved and injured family members and their wider family and friends. My thoughts are with all of them and will befor a long time to come.
I have nothing more to add to this and would hope that our community can now be left to deal with this tragedy in our own way and in peace and quiet."
