Mr Steven Cowan, skipper and Mr Shaun Hayes, digger crew, aboard the Harbour Commissioners dredger ‘Gypsey Race’ came to the rescue of a woman who had fallen from the pier at Berwick Harbour.
The lady had been trying to photograph dolphins and slipped in to the water. Steven and Shaun spotted her in the water and rescued her before the emergency services reached her.
After her ordeal and a short spell in hospital, she returned to Berwick to thank Steven and Shaun for saving her.
The dredger and its crew have been on charter to Berwick for approximately the last month and are due to return home soon.
