Holidaymaker Francesca Murphy seeks mystery lifesaver

A Cardiff holidaymaker wants to trace a mystery Swansea man to thank him for saving her life when she nearly drowned off a French beach.

Fran Murphy was paddling with three friends on a sandbank at a resort near Perpignan when it collapsed.

The group was left in difficulty, with Ms Murphy, 52, nearly unconscious.

However, a man, believed to be from Swansea, rescued them and brought Ms Murphy ashore before handing her over to French emergency services.

Caroline Evans reports.
