There's no room for the silly mistakes we all occasionally make on the ocean... especially if you're a nine-year-old boy riding an inflatable dolphin toy designed for a pool. Thankfully, this embarrassed boy and floating toy lived to swim another day after an amused British lifeguard comes to their rescue.
