Description of Incident
Alerted by the crying of distressed youngster, ten-year-old Nathan Condon kept his cool by steering him to safety with a stick before dragging him out of the water.

The primary school pupil has been praised for his actions by Winterbourne Swim Academy, where he is taking an introductory lifeguard course.

As Nathan cycled past the pond, he heard a four-year-old child crying and discovered the youngster had fallen in and was submerged in water three metres out. The boy's parents were around the other side of the pond fishing, unaware of what had happened, so Nathan leapt into action.
