George Anders Rindell saved Harry Rosenbaum from drowning, Sea Gate, New York, October 4, 1930. Rosenbaum, 63, garment cutter, dropped from a pier into water at least 12 feet deep 100 feet from the shore of Gravesend Bay and called for help. In darkness, Rindell, 25, carpenter’s helper, partly clothed, dropped 10 feet down to the water from a bulkhead along the shore, swam 100 feet to Rosenbaum, and then towed him as he swam slowly back to the bulkhead. The water was cold and somewhat choppy, and Rindell was momentarily submerged at times as he swam. The end of a garden hose was flung from the bulkhead to him, and he tied it around Rosenbaum, who then was drawn upon the bulkhead. The hose was lowered to Rindell, and he wrapped it around himself and was pulled upon the bulkhead.
