A HERO policeman had to be treated for hypothermia after rescuing a drowning pensioner from a Doncaster marina.

Acting Sergeant Neil Pryce says he made a ‘split second’ decision to dive into the freezing water and pull the 65-year-old man to safety.

The 44-year-old officer was in the water at Doncaster Lakeside for at least 10 minutes during the dramatic rescue and also needed hospital treatment.
