Baby rescued from Watchet marina

A baby's had a miraculous escape after being rescued from the marina at Watchet in Somerset.

The six month old was pulled from 12 feet of water after his buggy rolled into the harbour.

He was rescued by dockmaster George Reeder and taken to hospital where he's described as 'comfortable'.

The wind caught the buggy and it ended up in the harbour.

I heard the commotion and jumped on the bike to cycle over. When I got there the mum was screaming and I saw the buggy floating.

I jumped in and swam over and turned the buggy over and pulled it over. I was just in the right place at the right time.
