It's a story that ends well. A little girl, carried off while bathing near her parents on a beach in Antirion, a town in the Gulf of Corinth, was saved by a ferry which diverted its path to come to her aid.

The child, aged between 4 and 5 years old, was on a unicorn buoy, one of those that have been blooming on the beaches in recent summers, when a gust of wind would have quickly carried it offshore, reports Sud Ouest.

When a young girl on an inflatable unicorn was swept out to sea, her parents informed the port authorities and the captain of the "Salaminomachos" ferry boat found and rescued the child! 😲🚤🦄 # viralhog #unicornfloat #rescueboat #Greece pic.twitter.com/FJ9FFCXQit
