Marty’s Feel Good Story Of The Week- Jump On In

A police officer who says he doesn’t know how to swim jumped into a fast-moving river on Saturday with all his gear on, and somehow saved a guy from drowning.

On Saturday, he saw a guy fall into a freezing cold river.  And he was struggling to keep his head above water.  So without thinking, the officer jumped in to save him.

The only problem is HE’S not a strong swimmer either.  He actually says he “CAN’T swim.”  But he must have some skills, or this would have turned out differently.  He also jumped in with all his gear on, and that weight made it even harder. But he somehow managed to stay afloat, and helped the guy to shore.  So they both made it out okay. He has a new nickname now because of it.  He says everyone’s calling him “The Hoff” because of David Hasselhoff’s lifeguard character on “Baywatch”.
