Herbert B. Eddy, 39, fisherman, helped to rescue Joseph E. Ducharme, 22, and Edward P. Stark, 28, Coast Guardsmen, from drowning, Manomet, Massachusetts, March 10, 1928. (See case of JOHN F. HORGAN.) Ducharme and Stark were members of the crew of the capsized surf boat. Eddy rowed a leaky dory with great exertion 900 from the shore to the surf boat and helped Ducharme into the dory. Daniel J. Sullivan went with Eddy and bailed almost constantly. Eddy rowed about 55 feet to Stark, and Sullivan tried unsuccessfully to pull Stark into the dory. Sullivan then tried to bail with one hand while he retained his hold of Stark with the other. A motorboat arrived, and Sullivan was relieved of Stark. Eddy rowed to shore. Ducharme collapsed on shore, but he recovered. Stark and others, who were clinging to the surf boat, were taken aboard the motorboat. Stark died before he could be taken to the hospital.
