Man rescues boy from raging Wappinger Creek

SALT POINT - Vic and Marlene Pociask are used to hearing children as they swim in the Wappinger Creek, the tree-lined ribbon of water that passes the home they built 35 years ago on Hurley Road. Full Story

Mr. Pociask, I don't know you other than what I have read today in the Poughkeepsie Journal. But saving those children's lives, at the possible expense of your own, is a heroic action that must not go unacknowledged. It gives me great hope to hear of strangers coming to the rescue of strangers. The courage you displayed and the daily courageous actions of all in our community who serve locally and abroad as soldiers, sailors, airmen, police, fire and emergency responders is too often taken for granted by those of us not directly affected by the event or emergency.
Thank you.
