Benjamin Harris died attempting to save Kevin R. Harris from drowning, Fullerton, Nebraska, March 25, 1990. Kevin, 10, was fishing in the Cedar River from atop a concrete wall near a dam when he fell into the water. His brother, Benjamin, 13, student, who was with him, immediately jumped into the river and grasped him. They were carried over the dam into a spillway, where they were separated. A man who had been summoned from nearby waded into the river and, with the use of a rope, pulled Kevin to safety. The man then retrieved Benjamin, who had been carried farther downstream. Kevin was treated at the hospital for hypothermia, and he recovered. Attempts to revive Benjamin failed.
