A dock master tells Sky News how it was "instinct" to save a baby boy whose buggy had been blown into freezing waters.
A dock master has rescued a six-month-old baby after his buggy was blown into freezing cold waters by strong winds.
The infant, who was strapped in the buggy, was swept into the water as his mother walked along Watchet Harbour, Somerset, at 8am.
After hearing screams for help George Reeder, 63, initially thought a dog had fallen in but was horrified to see the pushchair upturned in the water.
He dived in and pulled the pushchair to the wall, before a member of the public helped attach a rope and hauled it to dry land - but not before the baby had spent around five minutes in the water.
The baby was revived by a passerby who administered CPR, before being taken to hospital, where he is believed to be out of intensive care.

The baby is lucky the man was around to jump in... Glad the baby is doing OK now
EDIT in case anyone doesn't know - A buggy is a stroller
