Mum's bravery is inspiring
9:00am Saturday 22nd February 2014 in Opinion
WHAT would you do if your child fell into freezing water? All parents would surely do the same as Sue Read from Verwood – but that doesn’t make her bravery any less inspiring.
Sue had taken her two children Connor and Olivia to Moors Valley Country Park when Connor, who has learning difficulties, slipped into the water.
Fortunately, Sue was able to dive in and drag Connor to the safety of dry land, but it could have been worse.
We can only begin to imagine what was going through the family’s minds, but, for sure, Connor is very lucky to have a mum like Sue.
