This storyboard does not have a description.
Early Saturday morning, Sherry Jenkins brought her son, James, to the beach. She instructed, “Stay out of the water unless I am with you. There are dangerous currents that can pull you out to sea, and you could drown.” He acknowledging her rule with some attitude,James did not actually heed her warning.
They decided to build a sand castle together. James was responsible for gathering the sand while Sherry collects shells. James ventures into the forbidden water while his mother was distracted. He had recently finished swimming lessons at a local pool and was confident he knew what he was doing.
Further down the beach Jeremy Walters was relaxing on the sand. A wailing voice begging for help brought him to his feet within seconds.
Sprinting to the water’s edge,Jeremy scans the sea line for the voice. In the distance, he spots James. Sureenough, James was captured by a rip current and flung out to deeper waters.
Jeremy sprang into action. He swam 100 yards out to where James was struggling to remain above the surface. He confided “it was the fastest I’ve ever swam before.” Grabbing James from behind, Jeremy swam parallel with the shoreline, exiting the current, before pushing back to shore.
Sherry threw her arms around James as they arrived on dry land. “You saved my baby!” she cries. “I can never thank you enough!” Jeremy blushes and replies with a healthy dose of modesty “I simply did what any one else would’ve done.”
