Ted Kennedy Tries Water Rescue
Thirty-six years too late
.Kennedy called the Hyannis Fire Department around 11 a.m. when he saw the fishermen on the breakwater as waves up to 5 feet high crashed over it and winds gusted to 35 mph. The 69-year-old senator took out his whaler and got within earshot of the fishermen, but headed back because it was too dangerous, Hyannis Fire Capt. Craig Farrenkopf said.
Nobody died this time. Can't help thinking that Mary Jo Kopechne would have appreciated it if Teddy had called the local fire department the last time he knew somebody was in danger of drowning.
