George M. Mink, Jr., attempted to save Kenneth D. Barnes, Jr. 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, Barnes, 46, was submerged and then rose to the surface inert. Mink, 41, drug salesman, piloted his motorboat to Barnes in the turbulent area. Unable to reach him from the boat, Mink jumped into the rapids area to aid Barnes. Both Mink and Barnes went under. Mink surfaced at the bank and held to a projecting rock until others arrived and aided him from the water. Barnes drowned.
