SECTION 2 HAYS DAILY NEWS PACK is December 20, 1978 Man And Twfn Grandsons Drown By THOMAS D. BILLAM CAMDENTON, Mo. (UPI) - Will&rd and Helen Treat had cared for their twin 4- year-old grandsons since birth. They had almost completed official adoption proceedings on the windy December day they took the children on an outing on the Niangua Arm of the Lake of the Ozarks. On that outing 16 days before Christmas, the boys ran onto a sheet of thin ice and fell through Into the 30-degree water. Treat, 67, saw them go under and, ignoring his own heart troubles, grabbed a large chunk of styrofoam used to float boat docks and jumped into the water in a vain attempt to save them. All three drowned. Lt. Col. Jack Reynolds of the Missouri Water Patrol said Treat nearly succeeded In rescuing John Thomas and Joseph Ryan Treat. "The ice wasn't completely frozen across," said Reynolds. "They broke through within 10 feet of open water. "But when he broke through and tried to get hold of his grandchildren, he lost his grip on the foam. It could have kept them up, but It broke away from htm." Bystanders told Helen Eidman, warrant officer at the sheriff's office, that Treat had both boys up out of the water at one time, but then said, "I can't hold them any longer." Mrs. Treat went into shock when rescuers recovered the bodies. "I more or less had to hold the grandmother back to keep from going on the ice, too," said Cnmden County Deputy Sheriff Herbert Hobbs. "When I got there, all she could say was 'They're under the ice, they're under the ice.' She kept saying that over and over. She was crying and I was holding her back.
