True Story: Ron MacLean jumped into the Delaware River to save a man who was taking his own life this afternoon.
added 5:50pm, from Fan590,
MacLean says he was having lunch on a patio by the Delaware River with Don Cherry when a panicky woman came up saying there was someone in the water.
MacLean and a few others sprung into action — he grabbed a velvet rope, jumped a wrought-iron railing and ran down to the water.
When he arrived he saw another man had already jumped into the river and pulled the man to a raft.
added 7:06pm, from Kristina Rutherford of CBC,
And what was Cherry doing at the time?
“Supervising,” MacLean said. “He was just overseeing to make sure everything was OK. We knew this guy wasn’t going to drown at this point.
“I kind of hop over the rail and jump down to help this guy that’s already in the water with the man who is taking his life, as it turns out.”
