4-year-old Roger Lausier was paddling around at the Salem, Massachusetts beach when he was pulled into the deep by a current. Luckily, a woman saw him and managed to reach him and pull him to shore, thus saving his life. The lady didn’t want to be praised in any way for her heroism and refused all rewards.
Nine years later now 13-year-old Roger was paddling his raft when he heard a woman shout. Her husband had fallen from his boat and was about to drown, but Roger quickly got to him and clutched his hand. The guy was rather heavy and 13-year-old Roger wasn’t able to pull him out, but he kept him above water until help came and brought them to shore. Once the man was rescued, the boy realized that the guy whose life he had just saved was the husband of the woman that once saved his.
