Jewish teens don't regret saving man with a swastika tattoo

Four Jewish teens helped save the life of a man with a tattoo of a swastika -- and they don't regret it, reports NBC Boston.


The Boston teens noticed a man submerged in the Chestnut Hill Reservoir in Massachusetts. They ran up and alerted a nearby officer, who rushed to the scene and pulled the man out of the water. In the process, he noticed that he had a swastika tattooed on his hand.

The man is expected to recover. The officer let him know that his rescuers were Jewish and commended the teens for their good deed.

"They wanted just to let him know that it was four young Jewish boys that helped save his life," said the officer. "A good deed is a good deed and that's part of life. We should be helping everybody out."
