Eight-year-old Mark Clayton, of Queens Avenue, Spalding, is pictured with Roy Wells , who rescued him when he fell into the Coronation Channel and became trapped.

Mark was trapped in eight feet of water within the concrete walls of the sluice at Roman Bank until Roy, who was fishing nearby, came to his assistance.

Mark and his friends Melvin Lavender (14) and his brother Tony Lavender (8) (also pictured) were about to fish for pike when Mark, who was walking on the narrow parapet, lost his footing and fell.
