Off duty policeman rescues woman from Pontevedra river

An off duty National Police officer and Olympic canoeist rescued a 61 year old woman from the Pontevedra river in Galicia on Monday morning.  He was training in his canoe when he saw her having difficulties in the water.

He jumped in and, supporting her head, swam with her to the edge.  Once there, he proceeded with resuscitation techniques, then put her on her side to expel any water from her lungs.
