Congratulations to Year 10 student Tom Paterson, who received a Commander’s Commendation from the NSW Police Force during the holidays.
Tom received the commendation for rescuing a drowning 74 year old woman at Cellito Beach near Forster in January.
Tom swam through a rip and pulled her onto his surfboard in large surf. The woman's husband wrote to the Police following the rescue. Congratulations, Tom.
