Young girl was pulled from the water after falling from her kayak, being unable to empty it of water and get back aboard. Episode occurred near the Plimmerton Boating Club later in the afternoon of the mid-winter swim. Her father was anxiously watching from the shore. Fortunately MR2 was exercising close by and was able to respond very quickly. No callout was received - person was observed falling our of kayak by a crew member. The girl was deliver the few meters to shore and advised to take a hot shower - the water was very cold.
