TF board regular Dave Benson has been heralded as a hero after he dived into the River Dart to save a three year old boy.
The indicent, which made the local papers, happened at 10am on Saturday . The boy had been on the visiting yachts pontoon off Dartmouth and simply ran off the end and into the river.
I was just standing on the quayside chatting and noticed some kids runnning on the pontoon, said London solicitor Davey.
One of them just ran off the end as if he didn’t realise it was there. I caught it out of the corner of my eye but when I looked round the kid’s head was bobbing down. I just dived in and pulled him up, and rather sweetly he just said ‘thank, you’.
