The father of a little girl sucked 150ft (46m) along an underground drain has told how she had stopped breathing when he pulled her from the River Wear.

Leona Baxter, three, was playing in a puddle when she disappeared. She had been washed into the uncovered drain, travelled 150 ft, and was thrown out into the river.

Her father Mark saw what he thought be her coat floating down the river. Then he realized it was Leona.

Leona responded well to First Aid and has fully recovered.


It’s not every day that we hear good news like this.

Spiritually speaking, people’s lives are going down the drain every day and people who are drowning in their circumstances cannot rescue themselves. They need someone to rescue them and bring them back to life.

We are the people who have the power to rescue them

And Jesus is the one Person who can restore them to life again.

This is ‘good news’
