Heroes Rescue Disabled Vet from Pond
LEALMAN, Fla. (AP) - Two Good Samaritans are being praised after authorities say they rescued a disabled veteran whose wheelchair rolled into a southwest Florida pond.
Lealman Police say 79-year-old Robert Lunay was sitting in his wheelchair overlooking a pond Friday night when his wheelchair slipped and he fell into the water. Lunay is a double-amputee.
Robert Fields and Norman Steers happened to be nearby and heard Lunay calling for help. They jumped into the water and pulled him to shore.
Lunay was not injured.
