Florida Boy Swims for an Hour to Save Stranded Dad and Little Sister Lifes

Florida Boy Swims for an Hour to Save Stranded Dad and Little Sister Lifes

A 7-year-old, Chase Poust in Florida swam for an hour to help his dad little and sister, who were swept away by a current in a boating accident. 

Chase Poust took his heroic swim after his father Steven advised him to. He was trying to help Chase’s 4-year-old sister Abigail, who was wearing a life jacket and was caught in the current on St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida after falling off the back of their anchored boat.

“The current was so strong that my sister—she usually hangs out at the back of the boat and—she let go so I let go of the boat and grabbed her and then I was stuck,” Chase told News 4 Jax.

Chase did what his father asked and swam an hour to shore, where he reached the nearest house to ask for help. He says he floated on his back for part of the way there.
