US Marines Honor Man For Saving Drowning Boy

A Maryland man was honored as a hero recently for jumping into a creek to save a boy from drowning.

The man, Jack Severn, 71, of New Market, MD, was given a Heroism Medal from the Marine Corps League at the Maryland chapter's annual convention in Ocean City, reports say.

The man was at a Park in Frederick with his wife and granddaughter last month when a young boy fell into Carroll Creek. Severn jumped into the shoulder-deep water and swam across a strong current to bring the boy back to shore.

The story found its way to the Marine Corps League and the league, about the incident. Severn, a member of the veterans organization, was honored by the League, which was formed to give assistance to wounded Marines and to promote Marine Corps ideals.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
