Pride of Britain Awards 2018 viewers were moved to tears just minutes into the awards show on ITV on Tuesday.

Dad Paul initially told son Joe, then 13, to sit on the upturned kayak, planning to tow him to safety.


Paul then began to struggle in the water and wasn’t able to get any closer to land.

Shortly after, as the pair began to kick themselves to shore, Paul lost consciousness.
