Earl Wyatt Clark, Jr., saved Alan N. Brunelle from drowning, Ashaway, Rhode Island, March 9, 1979. When his kayak capsized in the flood-swollen Paveatuck River, Brunelle, 21, a non-swimmer, was thrown into deep water where, unconscious, he floated face down in the swift current. Clark, 27, laborer, entered the cold water fully clothed and, after some difficulty, reached Brunelle. Although feeling effects of the cold, Clark then towed Brunelle, who revived, to safety.
