Jeras, Tony Jr. (Falls from Boat - 28 JUN 1953)

Last Sunday afternoon while attending a church picnic at the Rock Dam Resort, Tony Jeras Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Tony Jeras Sr., Willard (Clark Co., Wis.), almost met his death while playing in a boat near the water. Somehow he lost his balance and toppled over the side of the boat into the deep water and sank to the bottom in no time.

His playmates, noticing this, called for help and in no time Julius Klapatauskas, Willard, and his brother Michael jumped in and rescued Tony. The men being fully dressed, lost no time and the young six year old boy was bo worse for his sad experience.
