Robert Lee Guy died after attempting to save Daryl L. Lawson from drowning, Lewisville, North Carolina, July 16, 1995. Struggling to stay afloat, Lawson, 31, shouted for help after the canoe he was in capsized, throwing him into the deep water of a private lake. At a residence nearby, one of his associates, Guy, 37, executive assistant, and others were alerted. They responded to the lake, and immediately Guy entered the water for Lawson. Guy experienced difficulty while swimming to Lawson, and he too struggled to stay afloat, then submerged. Lawson was rescued by others; he had swallowed water and was exhausted, but he recovered. Guy was recovered shortly by divers but he could not be revived. He drowned.
