Michael Jeff Jackson died attempting to save Sharon M. Dykes from drowning, Saltillo, Mississippi, February 10, 1985. Sharon, 14, a non-swimmer, fell through the ice of a small pond. Her screams and those of her companions attracted the attention of Jackson, 26, disabled, who was in his yard nearby. Jackson immediately ran to the pond and, despite the fact that he could not swim, began to walk on the ice toward Sharon. As he approached her, the ice broke beneath him, and he too fell through. Sharon was removed by others, but she could not be revived. Jackson also drowned.
