50 years ago Suspended in an automobile on an open drawbridge 50 feet above icy waters, three women, two babies and a man were snatched to safety by the driver of the car who was credited with saving their lives, police said. Edgar C. Wike, living on Manchester Road near Brumell, kept his head throughout the harrowing experience, police said. Bridge operators Harry Borrowski and Mahlen Hollins said they were unaware the car was crossing at the time they opened the draw. Democratic Advocate, March 8, 1946.
