Roslyn Resident Saves Man From Possible rowning



Roslyn_WebLogoGray2Roslyn resident David Blauzvern became a Hero For A Day yesterday—-and it wasn’t just any act of charity. While jogging along the East River Wednesday morning, Blauzvern, along with two other men, saved an incoherent man from a possible drowning.

According to published reports, Blauzvern, who works as an investment banker in Manhattan, was taking a morning jog when he jumped into the East River near E. 10th St. to save a life. Blauzvern told the media that he came upon a crowd of people simply “looking out” on a man who was in the river, apparently in the process of drowning. Fortunately for the man, whose man has been withheld, Blauzvern was assisted by two other joggers, one a 29-year-old man and more fortiously, another an off-duty NYPD Captain. In time, this heroic trio was joined by an NYPD Harbor crew threw the joggers turned lifeguards a life ring and a life jacket to pull everyone onto their boat.

The heroic Blauzvern treated the event with aplomb, telling reporters that what he really needed to do was take a shower and then get back to work.

Congratulations, David!
