Congratulations to Water Taxi Deckhand Janet Hobday
, MATE, WATER BUSJanet Hobday had the opportunity to play life guard when two passengers were embarking on to the Water Taxi at the downtown stop near Las Olas.
One of the two young women waiting to get on board the boat was standing in front of the captain's station on the seawall.To make way for disembarking passengers, she
took a half step backwards and fell into the water.Without hesitation, Janet
, the Water Taxi
first mate, jumped right into the water and grabbed the girl to rescue her
.A life preserver was thrown into the water and the women were pulled out of the water safe and sound.
