RESCUED SURFER OFF SCOTTISH COAST WILL ‘NEVER SURF AGAIN’
A surfer who was rescued by a helicopter crew after spending more than 30 hours floating off the Scottish coast has vowed to never surf again.
Matthew Bryce, 23, was found 13-miles from the shore of Argyll on Monday night after paddling out at Westport, in the Kintyre peninsula, on Sunday morning.
A major search operation was launched when Matt did not return to shore. After more than a day of searching, Matt was located by a search and rescue helicopter, winched to safety and flown to hospital in Belfast.
In an interview with the BBC, he said: ”I was thinking I was going to die. I didn’t think I would see the sunrise. The night was the worst, sitting there with the fishing boats in the distance. I shouted for the fishing boats and they didn’t hear me.”
