Scott Welsh, a 40-year-old man from New Zealand, is passionate about fishing. He also passed this passion on to his 12-year-old son, Rico. The two, together with Krunar, the boy’s uncle go fishing whenever they have the opportunity. They were in various exotic places, where they fished all kinds of rare fish.
The three planned their next fishing trip. They decided to go by motorboat in the ocean. After preparing everything they needed, they set off in the morning by boat to the south coast, where they hoped to catch some good fish.
After a few hours, the three had already caught a lot of fish, and Rico, the 12-year-old kid, was very excited. The weather began to deteriorate, and a fairly strong wind was blowing from the west. Being far from the shore, the men decided to return home.
Scott was leading the boat with Krunar, and Rico remained on deck to admire the scenery. A big wave hit the boat, which shook violently. At that moment, Rico fell overboard into the ocean. Scott and Krunar did not realize that the boy had fallen, so they continued to steer the boat away from the boy who fell into the water.
After 5 minutes, Scott realized that Rico was missing and immediately returned the boat. He could see Rico in the water from a great distance.
When they reached him, the boy could no longer stay afloat because of the waves and sank.
As he was preparing to jump into the water, Scott and Krunar witnessed an amazing scene. A family of killer whales were swimming around Rico.
Where one of the whales sank and pushed the boy with her snout close to the boat, so that Scott could grab the boy by the hand.
The two men, along with Rico, were shocked. A killer whale rescued the 12-year-old boy.
“When I saw the killer whales, I was very scared and scared for Rico’s life. I was going to jump in the water to help my son, even if it meant dying myself. I can’t forget the image when that whale pushed Rico very carefully with its huge snout. It was a unique experience that we will never forget. ”
