John Sewell, a retired Kelso police officer, was fishing on Silver Lake when he saw a man swimming to a nearby boat. The man was trying to get into the boat when it overturned. Sewell saw a young child wearing a life vest fall out of the capsized boat and immediately went to help. He pulled the unresponsive child out of the water and began CPR. The child’s father got into Sewell’s boat and took over CPR while Sewell took them back to shore where they continued to do CPR until rescue personnel arrived. Thanks to Sewell’s quick actions, the boy survived.
