Edward Darwin Heath died attempting to save Hank Greenberg from drowning, Palmer, Washington, June 20, 1982. Hank, 11, fell into a deep pool of the Green River while playing in shallows upstream from the pool. A non-swimmer, he panicked as Heath, 24, aircraft assemblyman, dived into the river and swam about 25 feet to him. While Hank struggled with him, Heath made slight progress toward the bank before both submerged. Heath re-appeared briefly before submerging a second time. Hank was recovered by another man, but he died nine months later as a result of the accident. Heath drowned.
