BOSTON – A group of Jewish students who were out for a late night stroll saved a drowning man who had tattooed a swastika on his body, according to a Boston College police officer.
Last Thursday night, four unidentified Jewish youths — who attend an Orthodox yeshiva in Brighton — found the body of a man in the Chestnut Hill Reservoir.
Boston College police officer Carl Mascioli said the teens rushed to his patrol car and alerted him of the body. Mascioli then ran down to the reservoir, and pulled the man from the water. In the process, he noticed the swastika tattooed on the man’s hand.
Mascioli told NBC Boston that the man would have died if the teens had not found him and alerted the police. Mascioli said he also told the man with the swastika that a group of Jewish teens saved his life. “I kind of let the gentleman know sometimes some deeds have a funny way of turning around,” he told the TV station. “Their good deed had a little bit of a twist to it.”
