Jewish Teens Save Man With Swastika Tattoo From Drowning

They would have rescued him anyway! Four Jewish high school students in Boston say they didn’t see a man’s swastika tattoo before they saved his life—but it wouldn’t have mattered anyway.

The students at an Orthodox Yeshiva high school in the Brighton neighborhood spotted the man floating in the Chestnut Hill Reservoir during a late-night walk last week and rushed to flag down a police officer, MassLive reports.

Boston College Police Officer Carl Mascioli says that after the students raced to alert him, he pulled the partially submerged, motionless man from the water and discovered he had the Nazi symbol tattooed on his hand.

Mascioli tells NBC Boston that the students told him they had no regrets about saving the man, but they “wanted just to let him know that it was four young Jewish boys that helped save his life.”

“I kind of let the gentlemen know sometimes some deeds have a funny way of turning around,” Mascioli says. “Their good deed had a little bit of a twist to it.” He adds: “A good deed is a good deed and that’s part of life. We should be helping everybody out.”

It’s not clear how the man ended up in the reservoir, but he is expected to make a full recovery. Police say he would probably have died if the students hadn’t spotted him. Irony indeed…

    I wish I could believe that the guy would experience some little epiphany, but I don’t.

      I don’t either and I doubt we’ll read about it soon. Any idiot who tattoos a Swastika on his body will always be an idiot.
