“It’s still an honor, even if I don’t win it,” he said. “But I just went out to help some people who were drowning. I really don’t know if I could do it again, but I probably would try.

“If I see somebody who needs help, I try to help them,” he added. “It’s what I would want someone to do for me or for some of my family.”
