Sunderland star Watmore saves three people after a horrific boat crash

Date Posted,March 29, 2017

Sunderland hot shot Duncan Watmore has saved three holiday makers after a horrific boat crash in the Caribbean.

Watmore was cruising on a speedboat off the coast of Barbados with girlfriend Sophie when their vessel was struck by a speeding catamaran.

The impact knocked the 23-year-old and his partner overboard along with three elderly passengers.

Heroic Watmore managed to grab onto the travellers before coastguards rushed out to assist the sinking group.

Not content with saving the others from drowning, he then used his t-shirt to stop the bleeding after one of the passengers suffered a severe leg cut.

Watmore was out on a fishing trip while staying at the Colony Club on the island.

One of the rescued passenger told the Sun : “It was scary, life or death. I’m lucky not to be coming back in a box.

“We assumed [the catamaran] would see us and change course, but it then got closer.
