Child saved by good Samaritans near Boca Inlet (includes video story)

This past Sunday, a young child was rescued at a local beach. The heroic act was caught on video.

After screaming for help, a group of men rescued a boy they found struggling to swim near the Boca Inlet.

“The kid was going underwater numerous times,” says Seth Stern, one of the men who helped save the child. “I yelled for him to swim to me, and his response was, ‘I can’t, I don’t have enough energy.'”

Ocean rescue crews rushed to treat the child after the group helped pull him out of the water.

Stern hopes that Palm Beach County and the City of Boca Raton add warning signs and life preservers by the inlet.
