Student who saved woman from drowning is a true hero

Editor's Viewpoint

Life works in mysterious ways. Those were the words of Andrew Johnston - the heroic Lurgan student who saved a woman from drowning.

He should not have been near the scene of the accident in Lifford.

Andrew decided to forego a music festival to take his girlfriend on a weekend break when he came upon a couple whose car had driven into a river.

How lucky they were that this young man showed such resolve, diving in four times to free the woman from the overturned vehicle.

He declined to call himself a hero and said others helped, but people like Andrew restore one's faith in humanity.
