Killie Black, Jr., died attempting to save Kevin L. Bracy from drowning, St. Cloud, Florida, August 1, 1971. Kevin, 14, high-school student, and his 13-year-old brother, neither of whom could swim, were frolicking in a lake when they stepped into deep water in a dredged hole. They floundered wildly. Black, 22, truckdriver, was swimming nearby and swam toward the hole. Kevin sank and did not reappear. Reaching the hole, Black dived from the surface and was underwater briefly. He then called out Kevin’s name and dived again. Kevin’s brother also sank. Black reappeared briefly but then remained submerged. All three drowned.
