Christopher M. Keif saved Robert Garmony from drowning, Plymouth, Massachusetts, November 23, 1999. Garmony, 51, was found in the 50-degree water of Plymouth Harbor, off the Atlantic Ocean, at high tide by a woman walking on shore. The woman left for help and alerted Keif, 30, general contractor, who was in his vehicle parked nearby. Keif ran to the harbor and saw Garmony bobbing up and down in the water about 45 feet out. Fully dressed, Keif immediately entered the water and swam to Garmony, who by then had submerged. He grasped Garmony, pulled him to the surface, and swam him to shore. Garmony was taken to the hospital for treatment. Keif was cold after the rescue but uninjured.
