The grandson reportedly told Cracknell that he was “too young to die” as he rescued him from the water
The grandson, who according to Turner’s tweets is seven years old, reportedly told Cracknell that he was “too young to die” as he rescued him from the water.
The grandfather purportedly honoured Cracknell with saving his life before exclaiming at the sight of his celebrity rescuer saying “Bloody hell. It’s the rower!”
Turner said that her son Croyde, who is 11 years old and named after the beach, remained “cool, quick thinking, kind and brave” during the incident, while the rescued boy thanked Cracknell by vomiting on his wetsuit.
After the incident Turner said that all parties were “shaken but fine”.
