Howard Ronald Stone saved Steven L. Brown from drowning, Logan, Utah, July 3, 1960. Steven, 4, who could not swim, fell into water 10 feet deep in a reservoir and was submerged. He rose to the surface and floating face down ward, was carried by the current to beneath a bridge. Howard Ronald, 12, schoolboy, who was fishing from alongside the bridge, jumped into the water without delaying to remove his fishing creel or rubber waders, which extended to his hips. He swam 14 feet to Steven, lifted his head out of the water, and started towing him toward the bank. By then Howard Ronald’s waders had filled with water, and he experienced difficulty in swimming. Tiring rapidly, he towed Steven 14 feet to a submerged concrete ledge at the bank. Three boys who had been attracted then aided Howard Ronald in removing Steven from the water.
