David A. Bowman saved Richard Hunt from drowning, Queenston, Ontario, June 16, 1983. Hunt, 47, a non-swimmer, fell into the Niagara River and, unconscious, was being carried away by a swift current. Despite limited use of his right arm and shoulder, Bowman, 27, an unemployed machinist, dived into the river, swam 30 feet against the current, and seized Hunt, who was submerging in 50 feet of water. Bowman took Hunt back to the bank, where he was revived. He recovered after two days in the hospital.
