David Freeman Caines saved Arthur J. Lavers from drowning, Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, May 10, 1983. Lavers, 54, fell into the frigid water of Glace Bay Harbor while boarding a boat and was rendered unconscious. Although he could not swim, Caines, 20, fisherman, jumped fully clothed into the harbor for Lavers. After removing his boots, which weighed him down, Caines kicked and paddled his way to Lavers, tied a rope about him, then held onto him as those on the wharf pulled them in. Lavers recovered after hospitalization.
