Atlantic City, NJ Drowning Rescue, Jun 1922

Early Phila. Swimmer Is Rescued From Surf

Beach Surgeon and Captain Come to Aid of Charles Fiore at Atlantic City

Special to The Inquirer.
Atlantic City, June 18.-Entering the surf for a swim before the guards went on duty this morning, Charles Fiore, a Philadelphia excursionist, would have drowned, but for the assistance of Dr. Harry Subin, an assistant beach surgeon, and Beach Captain Owen Kartland off Mississippi Avenue. He was unconscious when brought ashore, and it was a half hour before he was revived.

Kartland and Dr. Subin were taking a swim when they heard Fiore’s scream for help a half block below them. They fought through the surf to his assistance. Fiore went down once before they arrived at his side and it was with difficulty he was dragged ashore.
