Frederick A. Wiess saved Richard W. M. Sutton from drowning, Bissett, Manitoba, June 7, 1974. When the boat in which he was riding capsized in a channel of rapid water between two lakes, Sutton, 54, was briefly submerged and then clung to the overturned craft. Wiess, 41, steel mill shift supervisor, piloted his motorboat to Sutton in the turbulent area. With Sutton holding to the craft, Wiess piloted the boat through the rapids area to near the bank. A submerged boulder then damaged the boat; but a man who had waded into the water was able to grasp Sutton and aid him to safety.
