A dock master has been hailed a hero after he jumped into a marina to save the life of baby boy in Somerset on Sunday.
A powerful gust of wind had blewn six-month-old Sam's buggy into the sea, as his mother walked along Watchet Harbour.
ITV News reporter Lucrezia Millarini reports.
This is the photo of six month old Sam Cooper Stevens, who is recovering well at Musgrove Park Hospital after spending several minutes underwater when his buggy fell into Watchet marina.
He was rescued by the dockmaster and given CPR by a family friend before being flown by air ambulance to Taunton.
A dock master has described how he dived into freezing cold waters to rescue a six-month old baby boy after his buggy was blown in by high winds.
The baby was swept into the the water as his mother walked along Watchet Harbour, Somerset, on Sunday. He is now recovering in hospital.
George Reeder, 63, has been called a hero but told ITV's Daybreak he is "just a fellow that jumped in".
A six-month old baby boy was plunged into an icy marina in Somerset this morning when blustering winds blew his pushchair away from his mother.
The infant, who was strapped into his buggy, was dramatically rescued by quick-thinking dockmaster George Reeder, 63, who heard the baby's mother screaming and dived into Watchet Harbour.
"I just jumped in and pulled the pushchair back over to the edge of the quay, and then somebody put a rope down over and I tied it on and they lifted it out," Mr Reeder said.
The infant, who spent around five minutes in the water, was revived by a passerby before being taken to hospital, where he is now thought to be out of intensive care.
A police spokesman confirmed the incident, adding: "The condition of the baby is believed to be no longer life-threatening."
