BERLIN: Formula One star Nico Rosberg rescued a five-year-old boy who was in danger of drowning as he swam in the sea off Monaco, the German’s management team said on Saturday (Sunday in Manila).
The 30-year-old Mercedes driver, who won the season opener in Melbourne last month, rescued the youngster after he got into distress while swimming in Monaco, where the German lives.
Rosberg dived from a jetty, where he had been playing with his seven-month-old daughter, when he saw the boy struggling as he played with friends.
The incident happened on the weekend before the Australian Grand Prix on March 20.
Rosberg’s management confirmed the incident, which was reported in daily newspaper Bild.
