Donald Brian Holway saved Henry Hane and helped to save Beatriz A. de Hernandez from drowning, Coconut Grove, Florida, March 26, 1983. Henry, 1 , Miss de Hernandez, 60, and Henry’s grandmother were trapped in a car that was submerging in 15 feet of murky water in a yacht basin. Holway, 30, wildlife officer, swam to the car and submerged three times, once entering the car fully, in vain attempts to locate its occupants. At the surface, he saw that two men had removed all three of the victims through the car’s rear window. Holway swam to Miss de Hernandez, who struggled with him and submerged him briefly. As one of the other men took the grandmother to safety, the remaining man took Miss de Hernandez from Holway and swam with her to a nearby dock. Holway swam with Henry to the dock. All three victims recovered after hospital treatment.
