A fully clothed Bobby Darin leaped into rough water from a motor boat off Kings Beach at Lake Tahoe on the California -Nevada border when he heard a young boy screaming for help about 150 feet from shore. He rescued the drowning youth and took him back to shore.

But refusing a heroes welcome singer Darin commented: "I'm such a lousy swimmer. If it had been any farther, someone would of had to save us both."
