8th Grader on Surfboard Saves Man from Capsized Boat
The eighth grader who rescued a boater from a capsizing boat in Jupiter, Fla. is speaking out. Drone footage captured the action as a wave capsized a boat in Jupiter Inlet Friday, leaving the boater helpless until 13-year-old Sam Ruskin came to his aid. The drone captured the teenager passing a surfboard to the stricken man, leading him away from the rocks. This impressive youngster is modest about his role in saving the adult’s life.
