A five-year-old girl was torn from the sea after being half a mile offshore with an inflatable unicorn.
The child floated away from the Greek city of Antirrio in the Gulf of Corith while playing in the water with his parents on Sunday.
The frightened couple called port authorities and a ferry named Salaminomachos was called to pick up the child.
The rescue footage showed the child sitting calmly on the colorful rubber dinghy as the ferry approached.

The girl reportedly escaped the parents' attention before floating out to sea.
She was shoveled into the arms of a crew on the ferry before being safely returned to her parents.
It only takes a six-year-old boy a fortnight to be washed up at sea with an inflatable swan.
Towyn builder Sam McKeeder said the boy was about 200 meters offshore in Black Rock Sands in North Wales when he was found hidden and unconscious in the water on Aug. 8.

The grandfather, who was on the beach with his family when he heard the child's mother calling for help, patted the boy's back before vomiting and breathing again.
"He was completely unconscious, I turned him over and patted his back. Then a lot of water and disease came up and he started breathing again," the grandpa told North Wales Live.
The boy's father had been ordered by the Coast Guard to stay ashore while he called 999 and waited with his son for his son. When the boy came ashore, paramedics were waiting for him.
The boy was given oxygen and was flown to Ysbyty Gwynedd by a Coast Guard rescue helicopter.
