Schneider, Tom (Near Drowning - 14 AUG 1953)

Tommy Schneider, seven year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Schneider, nearly drowned at the Tourist Park last Friday afternoon. The quick response of David Loos, Colby, Robert Henchen, Loyal and George Plautz, who are employed by Plautz Bros, and who were working at the dam at the time, was all that saved Tommy.

These men rushed to the scene of the accident, when Becky Peroshek summoned them. They jumped and pulled Tommy to safety and immediately started giving him first aid. Floyd Plautz, who also works for Plautz Bros., drove to Greenwood for Dr. Olson.

Thanks to the quick response of these men, another victim was saved from the treacherous Black River.
