A Happy Ending- Drowning Angler Rescued
Ted B. Harris, 52, of 164 Gates Hollow Road, Bradford, is a thankful man- escaping death by a matter of moments through the courage and fast action of two people, Chris Steinert, 23, of Hashbrouck Heights, J.J., and Mrs. Donald (Beverly) Magnuson of Kane. Shortly after noon yesterday, they saw a man thrown from his boat into waters of Kinzua Dam near “old Red Bridge,” nine miles north of Kane. He floundered in the water, sank from sight and emerged, only to sink again. Steinert took a running dive into the water with Mrs. Magnuson following. As Steinert reached him- a hand and wrist were visible above the water, momentarily and he grasped the wrist and began hauling, aided by Mrs. Magnuson.
