A girl found floating on an inflatable unicorn in the middle of the sea has been rescued by a Greek ferry.
According to local reports, e child, who was around four years old, was pushed into the ocean by strong currents in the Gulf of Corinth off the coast of Antirrio in western Greece.
Her parents contacted port officials when they noticed their little girl is out of sight and the local ferry captain on the Antirrio.
The video of the incident shared by one of the ship’s passengers shows the moment the girl was spotted floating on the unicorn.
Captain Grigoris Karnesis speaking to Greek City Time said:
“I was approaching the port of Antirio and I was notified by the Port Authority that a child, who I did not expect to be so small, had been swept away by the currents on a nearby beach, which is near the port pier,” s.
“She was frozen from fear, because the current was very strong. I put the ship in such a position so as not to affect the small inflatable.”I placed it in such a way that the ship was not affected by ripples, because if the inflatable sank we would have serious problems. “We approached slowly and were able to rescue the child.”
