EXCITING SCENE ON THE, SWANSEA SANDS. Ii NARROW ESCAPE FROM DROWNING. PLUCKY RESCUE. | AN ANXIOUS HOUR. Last evening, shortly before seven o'clock, the Swanso.). sands, near the Day Lailwav Station, presented an animated scene. It was a lovely summer evening; the air was miid and balmv, and the tide was flowing fast towards hich water. Jaded townspeople with their wivej and families, and interested trippers from the country districts, were there in hundreds, promenading up and down, aud watching the steamers nnd the white sails of the ships passing to and from the pierhead. To the westward were a I number of bathers swimminc the cares of the day had been left behind in town and relaxation and mental reireshment were the order going. Suddenly one of the I swimmers, who had ventured out from the ehore rather further than the other bathers, was seen to throw up his arms and a piercing cry stole o'er the surface 01 the sea. i ve got the cramp." Quickly the word ran along the beach there's a man drowning," filling all with horror and consternation. Looking out to sea just opposite Vivian's stream where the treacherous currents have so often in time past carried unwitting feathers to a watery grave, was seen the struggling form of the drowning man I lighting against his fell enemy. Soen a huge crowd gather and anxiously wateh a plucky young fellow who has dashed off to the rescue, and who with long swinging strokes is rapidly cearing the spot whore the drowning man has disappeared. Then follow moments of anxious waiting rwo other young fellows bent on aiding in I I irhf the rescue are close at the heels of tho first man, who has in the meantime seized the drowning one just in the niek of time, and is bringing him shorewards. Raised to a pitch of enthusiasm by the plucky set the crowd cheer loudly as the rescuer s return to the sands carrying with them the unconscious form of the half dead swimmer. He was found to be Samuel Ward, a lad 17 years of age, living at 117, Lower I Oxford-street, and his plucky rescuer was Mr Sidney Morgan, son of the Rev. Morris Morgan, of Gorse-lane, who was assisted in his task by Brinley Phillips, of Garden-street, and a son of the Rev. Alexander Pay. Ward was laid unconscious on the sards, and for- tunately skilled help was at hand. Inspector Gill and P.C. Rosser, of the Swansea Police Force, Messrs John Morgan and William Jones, of Cwmbaeh; John Jones, 24, Caepis- tvll-street, Swansea; Griffith Wiilia-me, 41, Cliff-street, Mountain Ash; and W. J. Devon- I pert, 83, Oxford-street, Swansaa, all rendered invaluable assistance,some in trying to restore animation by artificial means and others in keeping the crowd back. For full three- quarters of an hour all efforts to restore animation seemed in vain. The body lay cold and apparently lifeless. Then there was a faint Movement of the muscles notice- able, and the workers were encouraged to j renew their efforts. Presently there were I further hopeful signs and at last, just an hour after he was taken from the water Ward opened his eyes and stared vacantly around. In the meantinae a stretcher had been procured, and he was then carefully placed upon it, and carried to the Hospital, where Dr. Floyd. in view of his I weak state, deeded it advisable to detain him till to-day. Wari), who is a son of John Ward, a signahnan, has only recently learnt to swim. Those present all declare that the greatest credit was due to Mr. Sidney Morgan for his plucky action, and it certainly seems probable that had he not taken the prompt steps that he did Ward must have lost his life. It may be mentioned that Mr. Morgan, who is one of the best swimmers in the town, is a prominent member of the Swansea Amateur Swimming Club.
