This incident happened in the days when we all used to swim up at the Hudson dam at the Fairbridge Farm Molong.
I do not remember it well being only 6 or 7 yrs of age at the time. We were in a fenced off area for non swimmers and Rosy Bates and myself got out of our depth. I can remember Rosie clinging to me and dragging me down. I am sure we were both near to losing consciousness, as I can remember the White Tunnel experience of near death.
However one of the older boys came along and we both grabbed hold of him, he rescued us. I think we nearly drowned him in our panic. I never really knew who that boy was. He would have to be in his mid to late 70″s by now, as i am 70.
If you are out there oh gallant gentleman, I would like to express my thanks for saving both our lives. Not sure that even my mother Ruth Woods was aware of the incident.
You are my hero. Nyasa Holmes.
