Earl H. McCann, aged twenty-three, driver, died as the result of an attempt to save Charles A. Adams, aged twenty-two, farm-hand, from drowning, Crockett, Texas, August 5, 1914. Adams suddenly got into deep water at the edge of a shoal in the Trinity River and went beneath the surface. A man sixty years old, the only other person present except McCann, swam to Adams. Adams grasped him and they went beneath the surface twice; then the old man freed himself. McCann waded toward Adams, extending a fishing-pole, and he suddenly got into deep water. He swam a short distance to Adams and grasped him. Adams grasped McCann with both hands, and they went beneath the surface together twice. McCann freed himself; and the other man suggested they go to shore, as they could not save Adams. McCann swam toward the bank, but he became distressed and was drowned. Adams was drowned. Bronze Medal and $500 to mother, as needed. Carnegie Hero Fund Commission, Volume 1909 By Carnegie Hero Fund Commission.
