It was pure chance. 

New Zealander Gus Hutt usually fished in a different spot at the oceanfront campground, but he decided to try a new one. That’s when he saw a doll floating by. He pulled it out of the water, but it made a noise, and he realized it was a small child.

The 18-month old boy had slipped out of his parents’ tent, walked into the water and was about to swept out to sea when Hutt happened to grab him.

Had Hutt not been there at that precise moment, the story would not have a happy ending.

You can read more about it in New Zealand’s Whakatane Beacon.
