“At first we just thought it was a kid having some fun,” Mr Huggins said.

“But no one came out of the water.”

Mr Huggins, his wife and the couple theywere staying with raced down to the waters edge.

“There was a body laying face down and just some bubbles coming out of the water,” he said.

“I just dove straight in.”

The Marks Point resident, who is also a member of the Swansea Belmont Surf Lifesaving Club, managed to get the man out of the water and together the group kept him alive until emergency crews arrived.

This heroic effort earned Mr Huggins a Royal Life Saving SocietyAustralia (NSW) commendation award. He received the honour at Government House inSydney on Tuesday, presented by Governor of NSW DavidHurley.

High Commendations were awarded to Mr Huggins because of his selfless actions,community spirit and helping to saveanother person’slife.

“I was a lot more nervous receiving the award then when it [the rescue] was actually happening,” he said.

Since the rescue inFebruary, 2014, Mr Hugginshas heard from the man he pulled from the water.

“He called and he told me he is doing much better,” he said.

Other recipients included Senior Constable Mitchell Parker who was recognised forhis bravery and risking his own life to help save a farmer.

The farmer,Bob Watkins, had been struggling to stay afloat holding onto the upturned dinghy forapproximately 25 minutes.

“When I got the call I was told there was a first gate, a second gate and if you go through the fourth gate you’ve gone too far,” Snr Const Parker told Fairfax Media.

“In the end I could see the dam and just had to ramthe police truck through a fence.”

Without any regard for his personal safety hestripped off hisclothing and entered the icy water.

The water temperature was about eightdegrees Celsius and the man was suffering fromboth the effects of hypothermia and exhaustion.

The officer swam the patient and dinghy to the edge of the dam and dragged Mr Watkins out of the water in a semi-conscious state. He was taken to John Hunter Hospital where he made a full recovery.
