I PLUCKY SWANSEA LADY. There was an exciting scene on the Swansea Sands near Brynmill just before sii. o'clock on Wednesday evening. Bathing was in full swing, and the Cor- poration cubicles were having a busy time. The tide was nearly full up, with the result that there was a good depth of water' in the neighbourhood of the diving stage. Suddenly the onlookers were thrown into a state of confusion by Miss M. Baker, of Milton-terrace, Mount Pleasant. Hiaving got out. of, her d,-ptli-tlie beach at this point slants deceptively—she shouted for helpi being in imminent peril of drowning. If it had happened hall-an- bour later there would have ;)&pn several expert swimmers to go to her, assistance. As it was, however, there was nobody at band, who could assist. Recognising t-his, Mrs. Fred FoTdham, of King Edward's-road, who was sitting on tho sands with her two-vear-old son, bravely rushed into the waiter fuilv clothed, even to the. extent of taking her handbag with her. She reached the struggling girl. but, being encumbered by clothing, s he herself got into difficulties through Miss Baker clutching her. A gentleman by the name of Morris, also fully clothed, then entered the water, and, with other assist- ance, he managed to get the two ladies to the shore. Both of them were in a state of collapse, Mrs. Fordham being, if anything, the worse of the two. Stimu- lants were sent for, and the ladies eventu- ally returned to their homes, Mrs. Ford- ham having to borrow some clothing. The action of Mrs. Fordham in risking I her life was commended on all hands.
