On this date in the SCV:

On this day in 1995, 21-year-old Ryan Lock saved a 2-year-old boy’s life with CPR. Lock said he saw the boy floating face down in the pool, and upon yelling to others to call 911, he ran down to pull the body out of the water. Medical professionals took over once they arrived and the boy was said to be in “fair” condition.

Today’s Highlight in History:

On Sept. 12, 1942, during World War II, a German U-boat off West Africa torpedoed the RMS Laconia, which was carrying Italian prisoners of war, British soldiers and civilians. The German crew, joined by other U-boats, began rescue operations. (On Sept. 16, the rescue effort came to an abrupt halt when the Germans were attacked by a U.S. Army bomber; some 1,600 people died while more than 1,100 survived. As a result, U-boat commanders were ordered to no longer rescue civilian survivors of submarine attacks.)
