Report: Westwood saves man from drowning

They’re calling it a Haul in One.

Last week in Barbados, Lee Westwood charged into the Atlantic Ocean to save a man who was in danger of drowning, according to a report by the Birmingham Mail (UK).

British millionaire Colin Davies, who suffers from Parkinson’s Disease, headed into the water last week when his legs locked up and his wife was too far away to hear his screams. 

Westwood’s family was seated next to Davies’ on the beach, and the Englishman jumped into the water to save Davies before he dipped under.

Davies was unaware who the Good Samaritan was, describing him only as a “muscular male (who) grabbed me and, with tremendous but gentle care, got me back to my lounge bed,” according to the report. 

It wasn’t until another bystander asked Davies about his rescuer that he knew Westwood’s identity.

“If there is a power looking over us,” Davies told the newspaper, “I hope he takes note and delivers three majors to this kind and gentle human being.”

Over the past week Westwood has posted several pictures of his family vacation on social media, but he never mentioned the incident. 

In a reply on Twitter on Wednesday, Westwood wrote, “The gentleman was struggling to get back up the beach and I helped him out.”
