There Goes My Hero

There goes my hero
Watch him as he goes
There goes my hero
Hes ordinary
--Foo Fighters
What a guy:
Man dies in Bering Sea to save B.C. woman
Gave up his lifejacket after boat capsized

In the freezing cold Bering Sea she held on for an hour to the friend who saved her life, trying desperately to save his.

Instead, he died in her arms.

Wearing the flotation device Tom Grissom gave her when their skiff capsized on Sunday night, Amanda Delisle tried in vain to cut away the fisherman's water-filled rubber waders.
The 30-year-old held her friend tight as the cold took its toll. He succumbed to it.

A lil' OE's gotta be poured on the curb for Tom. Cheers.
