Greetings fellow Bizarros:

If you have to get rescued, this is the way to do it. When a family got caught in a riptide while swimming off a beach in Cornwall, UK they were saved by an unlikely rescuer. Or more accurately, by an un-clothed rescuer. You see, where they were swimming is a nude beach, and so was the woman who swam out to help them.

28-year-old Jessica Layton was sunbathing on naturist beach Pedn Vounder, near Porthcurno, when the drama happened.

She reported, "I was topless in the sea when I saw two young women struggling to swim near rocks. Another member of the family ran in to help them and she started struggling too.

"I swam towards them and thought 'oh s**t' as I realised how strong the rip current was. I was struggling myself and they were panicking, which wasn't ideal in a situation like that."

"Fortunately, I'd just put my bikini bottoms on before it happened. It's a classic - of course I was going to be topless when something like this happens!"

She said the family were really grateful for her heroic actions. As one of Jessica Layton's friends put it, "not all heroes wear capes, some of them don't even wear bikini tops."

Bizarrely,
Lewis

Runner marks 87 marathons in 87 days

A woman who decided to spend her COVID-19 lockdown time running a marathon every day has reached day 87 of her attempt, which she plans to end at 100 days. Alyssa Clark, who is originally from Bennington, Vt., said she was living in Italy in March when she found out the summer marathons she had been training for were being canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Clark said she decided to run a marathon for every day she was in lockdown. She initially expected her marathon-running project to last for only about 15 days, but numerous extensions to the orders led to her setting a goal of 100 marathons in 100 days. The runner unofficially broke the Guinness World Record for consecutive days running a marathon distance when she ran her 61st marathon May 30. It was unclear whether she would be awarded an official record. Clark marked her 87th consecutive marathon run Thursday. She said she plans to keep her project going until she reaches 100.

Woman seeks paternity test for goats

A Florida woman filed a civil suit against a neighbor demanding a paternity test for the five goats she purchased in December. The lawsuit filed by Kris Hedstrom demands that her neighbor, Heather Dayner, either refund the $900 she paid for the five Nigerian dwarf goats she purchased in December or provide a sample of DNA from the goats' purported father to prove their lineage. Hedstrom's lawsuit alleges she was under the impression that she would be able to register the goats' pedigrees with the American Dairy Goat Association. She said Dayner, owner of Baxter Lane Farm in Odessa, told her the father of the goats, Country Caprese Ace, was registered with the organization, but the group rejected her attempt to register the babies because Dayner is not an active member. Hedstrom alleges the association told her she would need to submit 40 hair follicles from the father goat to prove the lineage of the babies, so she sent Dayner a letter requesting the DNA sample. Dayner responded by offering to take the goats back and give Hedstrom a refund.
