In August, a man took his friend, his daughter, and several other boys on a boating trip in the Florida Keys. When one of the young boys started to struggle while swimming off of the boat, Brian Kowalski did not hesitate to jump into the water to save the child from the rip currents that were pulling him away from the boat. He was able to save the child but lost his life in the effort.
