ROY WETMORE (d. 1935) 2-Hour Fight to Save Boy From Death Fails Two Rivers Lad Lives For a While After Fall In River Frantic efforts to revive a 10 year old Two Rivers boy who had fallen in the West Twin river there late this morning, and who showed signs of life after being brought to the surface 18 minutes later, proved futile this afternoon. Attempts at resuscitation were in progress for nearly two hours before hope was given up. The boy was in the water from 11:17 until 11:35 and was thought to be dead when dragged to the surface on grappling hooks of the Coast Guard surfboat under command of Joseph Czechanski. The crew of the coastguard patrol boat Perry and the ground crew of the coast guard worked with the inhalator rushed to the scene by the Wisconsin Public Service Corporation until well after one o’clock this afternoon, but the boy did not pull through. Was Walking Across Bridge The lad, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Wetmore Sr., 2322 12th street, Two Rivers, and a companion, Otto Franzmeier, Jr., were walking across the railroad bridge that spans the West Twin river. They stopped to rest on a projected platform in the center of the bridge and the boy, in some manner unknown to his companion, fell between the boards and into the river below, a drop of about 10 feet. Franzmeier’s call for help was heard by Ben Dwoskin, operator of an auto wrecking service near the river, Dwoskin called the Coast Guard station immediately. The crew of the Perry, docked in the West Twin river, rushed to the bridge and Stanley Wroblewski and Harry Dwoskin, the latter of Manitowoc, began diving immediately into the icy water at the approximate spot where the boy submerged. It was only about three minutes later that the surfboat arrived and dragging started immediately, although the spot in the river is particularly difficult for the operation. Hundreds Await Word At 11:35 a.m. eighteen minutes after the accident, the boy was brought to the surface and rushed immediately to the shed that quarters Perry equipment. Hundreds of people gathered around the vicinity of the river to await there for word of the boy’s condition. Roy, known as Junior, was a student at the Koenig Elementary school. His twin brother died three years ago. Manitowoc Herald Times, November 30, 1935 P.3
