Boy, 7, swims an hour to rescue his dad and sister

A 7-year-old boy is being credited for helping to save his father and 4-year-old sister by swimming to shore and calling for help after they got caught in a strong current during a boating trip on Florida’s St. Johns River. The boy, Chase Poust, swam for nearly an hour, and raced to the nearest home for help. Chase’s father and sister were in the water for about two hours before they were rescued.

This story could have had a truly tragic ending. Regardless of state law, setting foot on board without a life jacket for everyone and making sure they at least know where it is and how to use it is just plain stupid.
