Burnett Peter Van Deusen (1913-1993) rescues boy from drowning
A 3-year-old Macon boy who fell into a motel swimming pool in Atlanta Monday afternoon was saved from drowning by two bystanders, police said. The child, identified as Si Simmons, was seen floating face down in the pool at Holiday Inn, 1810 Howell Mill Road, by Pete Van Deusen of Fairfield, New Jersey, who jumped in and hauled the boy out. A physician who examined the boy, said he would recover.
Person: Burnett Peter Van Deusen (1913-1993) aka Pete Van Deusen; Magnetic Ink Salesman at Sun Chemical (b. November 10, 1913, Albany, Albany County, New York, 12208, USA - d. October 31, 1993, Montville, Morris County, New Jersey, 07045, USA) Social Security Number 058077827.

Note: This version has the 15 seconds of dead air at the beginning edited out, and the audioless bumpers showing the rescued child and his mother, and the pool reduced. The bumpers had no audio to allow for a voiceover during broadcast by the local news anchor. The actual interview is in two segments. I added opening titles.

Marion Webb (1894-1931) in New York Times on February 12, 1929

Attacks Marriage of Her Ex-Husband. Former Mrs. Frederick T. Lewis Alleges She Had Divorce Set Aside.

Mrs. August C. Lewis of the Hotel Leonori, Madison Avenue and Sixty-third Street, sued in the Supreme Court yesterday to void the marriage of Frederick T. Lewis, who she asserts is still her husband, and Marion Webb, to whom Lewis was married in Connecticut in 1927, after obtaining a divorce decree which Mrs. Lewis had set aside. Mrs. Lewis asks that the defendants be restrained from living together and that Marion Webb be enjoined from using the name Lewis, on the ground that Lewis's pretended divorce from the plaintiff subjects her to ignominy and unpleasantness and to a false suspicion that the defendant divorced the plaintiff because of infidelity. Justice Glennon ordered that the papers be served on Lewis by mail to the merchandising department of Hahne & Company, Newark. The affidavits of Mrs. Lewis and her attorney, Henry Woog, asserted that Lewis is now living in East Orange with Marion Webb and that he is remaining out of New York to avoid alimony in a suit for separation brought by the plaintiff.
