Boy talks about sighting drown bear cub in Douglas Harbor
With the permission of his parents, we have interviewed the 10 year old boy who spotted that black bear cub that was in danger of drowning in Douglas Harbor Sunday afternoon.
Cedar Miles, the son of Lisa and Tim Miles, was on the stern of the Challenger, their tugboat home at the time reading.
He saw what looked like a dog having trouble swimming along the new breakwater. Cedar that scared him because the animal kept falling off and going under water and Cedar was afraid he was drowning.
So he went and told his mom who alerted his dad.
Tim sought the help of his neighbor and they took Tim Sexton's skiff out to make the rescue.
Cedar wishes now he would have been on the skiff to help in the rescue.
When we asked at the end of the interview if he had anything to add, Cedar took an opportunity to make this plug on a totally different subject.
He urged everyone to participate in Ocean Clean Up Day Saturday.
We're told Cedar is home schooled.
