Vincent Joseph Vautour saved Freda M. Landry from drowning, Richibucto, New Brunswick, August 11, 1980. Miss Landry, 39, and six others had been thrown from a boat that capsized in turbulent waters of Blacklands Gully in Northumberland Strait. Vautour, 19, fisherman, was on another boat nearby and saw Miss Landry floating unconscious in the extremely rough water. He jumped overboard and swam through 15- to 20-foot waves to Miss Landry, then dived for her and took her to the surface. He then swam 150 feet with Miss Landry to another boat, into which both were pulled. Miss Landry was hospitalized, but she recovered.
