Leonard A. Komant died attempting to save John R.L. Peavoy from suffocation, Sherwood Park, Alberta, May 13, 1981. Peavoy, 18, fell into a well containing waist-deep water and gasoline vapor. Komant, 45, general contractor, and others lowered one end of a tarpaulin into the well, and Peavoy grasped it moments before he lost consciousness. Komant then descended the well and lifted Peavoy from the water before he, too, was overcome. Both men died.
