Emmanuel E. Wynn died attempting to help save Nathan T. Ryer from drowning, Daytona Beach, Florida, September 16, 2000. Ryer, 19, was the driver of a car that, in a highway accident, left the roadway, entered an adjacent retention pond, and started to submerge at a point about midway between the banks. Wynn, 26, telemarketer, was a passenger on a bus that then stopped at the scene. Wynn and two other men from the bus entered the water and swam out to the car. After the car’s convertible top was put down, Ryer exited the car and swam with the two other men to the bank. Wynn was last seen at the passenger side of the car, which then completely submerged, taking him with it. He was found shortly, partially under the car, by a man who had dived to look for him, and he was pulled to the surface and removed from the pond by that man and others. Wynn had been submerged for about five minutes, and resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful. He had drowned.
