A Stow teenager is being credited for saving the lives of a mother and son while on vacation in the Carolinas. Travis Shrout saw the two struggling while swimming in the Atlantic Ocean, so he sprang into action to help. And it was all caught on video. Travis was out boogieboarding in the ocean when he thought he heard a mother yell for help. The mom and her 10-year-old son were probably about 50 yards or so from shore when the current began to pull them further out to sea. Travis yelled to see if they were in trouble. When the mother said they were, he quickly sprang into action.

Travis is a former lifeguard and quickly gave his board to the mom before swimming out to save the boy who went underwater several times. He was able to successfully help them both get back to shore, but he admits there were some scary moments. “There was a couple times where a couple waves came over our heads and kind of submerged us. They weren’t really big waves, it was just not something you want to be facing when you’re trying to get two people in I guess,” Travis recalls.
