The 7-year-old Sem from Lelystad did not hesitate last Sunday when he saw a 2-year-old toddler lying in a wak in the Loosdrechtse Lakes. “He jumped off the playground, climbed over the fence and pulled my son out of the ice water by his hood,” says the toddlers mother to Flevopost.
The toddler was playing with his parents in a playground on the ice. According to the mother of the child, there were many people skating. “The ice seemed so strong,” the woman said. Nobody seemed to realize that there was a big pool right next to the playground.
When Sem saw that the toddler fell into the water, he did not hesitate for a moment. He jumped off the playground, climbed over the fence and fished the child at his hood out of the water. To the parents of the toddler, Sem is a superhero; “We are very grateful to him.”
many places in the country, people have fallen into the icy water. In addition, at least 40,000 skaters reported with injury to the emergency room last weekend.
