Fernand Ouellet saved Nicole St. Pierre from drowning, Trois Rivieres, Quebec, March 14, 1980. During a snowstorm, Ouellet, 30, paper maker, saw Miss St. Pierre, 34, clinging to the edge of ice 630 feet from the bank of the fast-flowing St. Morice River. Using a tree limb as a probing aid, he walked, then crawled, on ice partially covering the 30-foot-deep river and, nearly sliding in, pulled Miss St. Pierre from the open water. With the ice cracking under their weight, Ouellet retraced his course to the bank, taking Miss St. Pierre to safety.
