Brad Lewis has lived every parent’s worst nightmare. He saw his son Oscar teetering on the edge of a balcony, a concrete driveway sprawling beneath it. However, rather than watching a horrible accident unfold, the father sprang into action and put his own life in danger to save his son.
Brad was no stranger to heroics. He had served as an army officer before settling down in Australia with his wife Suz and his two sons, Oscar and Connor. He then worked as a deep-sea construction worker in the North Sea, toiling for hours, hundreds of feet underwater.
But the father-of-two was more than his job titles, according to a GoFundMe page set up in his honor. “Brad […] has always spent his days supporting others, giving more than he gets, putting smiles on faces and being a lovely family man,” it said.
