Randall S. Neustaedter died after helping to save Courtenay E. S. Funk from drowning, Pilot Mound, Manitoba, July 14, 1994. Courtenay, 10, experienced difficulty returning to the bank while swimming in Rock Lake. Neustaedter, 22, college student, was working at a boathouse nearby; although he was a poor swimmer, he immediately entered the lake and went to Courtenay, who was in the outer limits of wadable water. Neustaedter secured Courtenay and passed him to others who were responding. As Courtenay was safely taken to the bank, Neustaedter submerged in the deeper water. Others searched for him, and when they recovered him several minutes later, he could not be revived. He drowned.
