A Plucky Seaman at Card iff. a REMARKABLE RESCUE FROM DROWNING. Meritorious Work by Ambulanqs Men. In the early hours of this morning a most remarkable rescue from drowning was effected at Cardiff. It appears that a seaman named vYouug, who belonged to the steamer North Britain, was standing on the deck of the steamer when he heard a splash He at ouco proceeded to the spob and found that a man had fallen into the dock. Young succeeded in getting him out and sent jiim on to his ship— the s.s. Usk. Young, seeing that the man was intoxicated, followed him, and they had nob gone far vhen the man again tumbled into the water. This time Young had considerable difliculty in getting the man ashore. and when his efforts wero rewarded with success the man was apparently dead. Young placed him on the quay and ran for assistance. Dock- constable Munroe and Berthingman Harris were soon on the spot, and at once set about restoring animation by Dr. Sylvester's method. They worked on for close upon two hours, at the end of which time signs of life were manifest. Shortly after the man regained sufficient con- sciousness to be able to state that his name was Thomas Costello, and that he was a donkeyman on board the f.s. Usk. After further restoratives (which included utilisation of a bottle of whisky found on Costello) had been applied and dry clothes obtamed he was enabled to return to his ship. Much credit is due to the seaman Young for his plucky rescue, and to both the constable and Harris for their untiring energy in bringmg tho man to life.
