David Keith Jarnagin died attempting to save Jesse J. Pullin, Jr., from drowning, Mexia, Texas, May 17, 1992. Pullin, 26, was fishing in the Navasota River when he lost his footing and was carried downstream by a strong current. His friend and fishing companion, Jarnagin, 26, immediately dived into the river and swam to him. Jarnagin pushed Pullin toward the bank, but both were swept farther downstream. Pullin grabbed hold of a tree limb overhanging the water and pulled himself to safety, but Jarnagin was carried farther downstream. His body was recovered from the river two days later.
