A very brave action by the Mate without doubt saved the little girls life, well done that man, mother should have received some sort of public reprimand but the shock of nearly losing her daughter should be punishment enough I suppose

I know the mate well and he did indeed save the girls life. Good to see that the rail seating has been removed.
