A CHRISTMAS Eve outing at the beach became something much more serious for Melbourne Storm youngster Harry Grant recently.
Grant and his father were at Oxley Beach in Port Macquarie, NSW when they spotted two women struggling in the surf.
The Storm rookie – who was last year’s RLPA Under 20s player of the season – was quick to react, racing into the water to help the pair.
According to Port News, Grant swam the first woman back to shore while the second lady made her way back out of the water safely.
“As soon as it was obvious that no-one else was going to help, Harry jumped into the water and swam out to help,” Grant’s father told Port News.
“Thankfully it was all over within a matter of minutes but it could have had some really bad consequences if no-one had stepped in to help,” Mr Grant said.
Well done, young Harry.
