  • Name: Charles Edward Cushing
  • Note:
    In his younger days Charles Edward Cushing (1889 - 1961) was credited with saving the lives of 5 drowning people at various times at Glen Echo Park in Stoughton Mass. There was even a movement to nominate him for the Carnegie Medal for Heroism. Charlie would hear nothing of it.
    - from the Stoughton Chronicle, September 6 1956

    ..JUNE 10, 1906
    Charlie Cushing, then a boy of 16, was sitting on shore watching the bathers about two that afternoon, he observed George E. Pope of Avon sink in the lake. Charlie swam with his clothes on to the place where young Pope had gone down for the third time and diving down, succeeded in raising him to the surface and, with the aid of others, got him ashore unconscious. While aid from Drs. Ewing & McDonald was sought, R. M. Evans and others worked over Pope but were not able to restore him to consciousness and the doctors worked on him a half hour before he showed signs of life. "Great credit is due young Cushing for his splendid work in pulling the drowning man from the bottom. But for his effective work, Pope would have lost his life". Stoughton Chronical Sept 6, 1956

    Charlie also saved lives in June 1907
    August 12, 1909
    June 17, 1913
    and another rescue not noted in files but Charlie stated there was one more and I believe him.
