Robert R. Condon, Sr., saved Frederick G. Fisher from drowning, Phillipsburg, New Jersey, June 17, 1970. When Frederick, 12, schoolboy, got into trouble in the Delaware River, Condon, 59, truckdriver, went to his aid. In deep water 150 feet from the bank, Frederick grasped Condon and climbed onto him. They were submerged briefly. By the time he had towed and pushed Frederick to within 15 feet of the bank, Condon was extremely tired. He gave Frederick a final push, moving him to within reach of a man who had waded into the water. Condon reached the bank and then collapsed but recovered after resting.
