Stanley E. Jones saved Hazel A. Streeter from drowning, Wakefield, Rhode Island, January 21, 1935. Miss Streeter, 25, fell from a bridge into the Saugatucket River and drifted in water 10 feet deep 20 feet from the bank. Jones, 33, yard foreman, who was heavily clothed, plunged from the opposite bank and swam 45 feet to her. Supporting her, he swam 25 five feet to a point at the nearer bank, where bushes hung close to the water. He grasped a branch, but it broke, and Jones was briefly submerged in water eight feet deep. After grasping another branch, which also broke, and being submerged briefly twice more, Jones gained support. The end of a rope then was thrown to him by men on the bank, and Miss Streeter was pulled out of the water. Jones then was helped upon the bank. He was temporarily exhausted.
