Helm Tony Carrier said: “The casualties had a radio with them and were able to issue a Mayday call to alert us to their predicament. Even though we’ve had fine weather in recent days, the water temperature is still very cold and even a short period in the water can be extremely dangerous. Both casualties had ingested some seawater, adding the risk of secondary drowning into the equation.” Both brothers have high aspirations for the future. Jake currently attends Totton College where he is enrolled on the Uniformed Public Services course with the intention of joining the Royal Navy next summer, and Mikey has always had his sights rmly set on joining the Police Force, although a er seeing the RNLI in action he now has a real interest in the coastguard. Hannah Avoth, Totton College Vice Principle and Centre Lead said: “ Totton College is incredibly proud of Jake, and the quick thinking he and his brother displayed when leaping to help those injured in this accident. Jake is a credit to the UPS course and himself. Jake has committed himself to his studies and with the right support, he has shown that he has earned his place on the Uniformed Public Services course and is one step closer to achieving his dream of joining the Navy.” Alan Chipping, Head Teacher at Applemore College said: “All the students and staff at Applemore are immensely proud of the bravery and presence of mind that Mikey and his brother showed under such challenging circumstances. Mikey is a true role-model for our ‘Applemore Ethos’.” When asked how they felt about being classed as ‘heroes’ both Jake and Mikey said: “We just knew instinctively that we had to try and get them warm and dry – the thing we were most worried about was that no-one was going to believe us as to why we were late home, our phones kept ringing and ringing whilst we were on the shoreline but obviously, we couldn’t answer them! ” Lifeboat Operations Manager and On Duty Deputy Launching Authority Diane Carrier added: “Without a doubt the quick thinking of Jake and Mikey on the shore helped to keep the casualties body temperature from dropping further. They should be incredibly proud of their actions and we are looking forward to welcoming them to the station to express our thanks in person, when government restrictions allow.” RNLI Praise Local Hythe Heroes!
