A little girl on a big inflatable …unicorn was swept away by the sea currents and was rescued by a local ferry boat. The incident took place on Sunday in the sea area off the town of Antirio in the Gulf of Corith.
The girl between 4 and 5 years had reportedly “escaped the parents’ attention” – as the media normal note in such cases – and was swept away from the shore on board of her favorite unicorn.
When the parents realized that their little daughter was out of sight, they informed the port authorities that on their part alerted the captain of the local ferry “Salaminomachos.”
The captain of the ferry on the Rio-Antirio route located the child in the middle of the sea and slowly approached with the ferry.
Crew members rescued both the girl and ..the inflatable unicorn.
Όταν η ανεμελιά μπορεί να καταλήξει σε τραγωδία…Συγχαρητήρια στον καπετάνιο και το πλήρωμα του πλοίου Σαλαμινομάχου για τις ενέργειες που απέφεραν την θετική κατάληξη.Η ανάρτηση του βίντεο δεν έχει σκοπό να επιρριψει ευθύνες, αλλά να καταδείξει την επικινδυνότητα των θαλάσσιων παιχνιδιών που κατά κόρον χρησιμοποιούμε όλοι.

The girl, that is seen to remain pretty cool during the adventure, was handed over safely to the parents.
The video below shows how things developed:
According to media, the ferry boat has recently picked up an elderly man from the sea who was also swept away from the currents in the area, while he was enjoying floating on a sea mattress.
The crew and the captain with his skilled maneuvers have rescued four people from the sea this month.
