1895 - Sons Saved from Drowning
WORCESTER DAILY SPY, TUESDAY DECEMBER 31, 1895

SUTTON
SAVED FROM DROWNING

Two sons of John Baker went skating at Woodbury Village, Sunday and broke through the ice in ten feet of water. They would have drowned but for the bravery and presence of mind of Henry Young and another young man, who were nearby. Mr. Young and his friends procured rails, and after some lively and dangerous work brought the two lads safely ashore.
