A policeman on duty at Latchi port plunged into the sea on Wednesday afternoon to rescue a tourist with mobility problems who had fallen off a small pleasure boat.

The special constable serves with the port police and was on duty at its Latchi station.  He spotted the tourist falling off the boat and going under,  jumped in and pulled him to safety.

The tourist was aboard a pleasure boat that had just returned from an excursion to Fontana Amorosa.
