Gail Flynn saved Laurence M. Riggs, Loretta L. Eriks, and Lylani G. Thornington from drowning, Youbou, British Columbia, March 4, 1976. Mrs. Flynn, 27, saw Laurence and Loretta, each 2, in a hole in ice beside a diving platform in Kissinger Lake. Walking 50 feet across the ice to the platform, Mrs. Flynn lifted the two children from the water. She then noticed Lylani, 3, floating inert under the ice 15 feet from the platform. Mrs. Flynn entered the deep water but was able to break the ice only a few feet toward Lylani. She then swam under the ice, towed Lylani back to the open water, and revived her. After handing Lylani to a man who had arrived at the platform, Mrs. Flynn climbed out of the water. She and the man took the children to the bank.
