18-Year-Old Boogie Boarder Saves Drowning Mother and Son in North Carolina
18-year-old Ohio student Travis Shrout was out boogie-boarding with a friend who was recording them with a drone on the North Carolina shore. Travis was about to head for shore when he noticed a mother and her child struggling in the coastal waters. A former lifeguard, Shrout paddled to the mom and gave her his boogie board. Then he headed for her 10-year-old son, who was heading out to sea and had gone under a few times, the teen said. He was able to grab the child and bring him ashore.
