Millionaire claims golfer saved him from drowning.
A British millionaire has claimed his life was saved by former golfing world number one Lee Westwood.
Colin Davies, from Solihull in the West Midlands, said he was holiday in in Barbados when he got into trouble while swimming in the sea.
Davies, who suffers from Parkinson’s Disease, said the Ryder Cup player raced into the sea when he saw him screaming for help and pulled him to safety.
Speaking to the Birmingham Mail, Davies added: “If there is a power looking over us, I hope he takes note and delivers three Majors to this kind and gentle human being.”
‘The beach Samaritan was Lee Westwood’ Westwood, who lives in Palm Beach, Florida, was holidaying with his family on Barbados when the incident occurred.
Davies said that as soon as he went into the water he realised he was in trouble. Describing the rescue, he said: “The family next to us on the beach heard me cry and within a second a muscular male grabbed me and, with tremendous but gentle care, got me back to my lounge bed.
