(AP) -- "Two lives were traded for two others," a relative said after two young men drowned while helping save two other kin from deep water during a family Independence Day picnic. Donald L. Thompkins, 17, and his brother-in-law, Lee Oliver Wilson, 20, drowned while helping to save Donald's brother, Timothy Thompkins, 9, and the T h o m p k i n s youths' uncle, James Rose, 27. . · The Thompkins family--cousins, uncles, mother, brothers, sisters--gathered Thursday to celebrate the holiday with good food, swimming and games at E.G. Simmons Park near the tiny town of Ruskin. about 15 miles south of Tampa. "But tonight we're a sad family," said Gloria Thompkins, 19, a sisler. Rose and Timothy had waded too far out in a man-made canal and stepped over a 20-foot dropoff, a sheriff's spokesman said. Donald Thompkins and Wilson heard the cries for help, dove into the dep water, and gave the other two a shove. In doing so, both men.went under. *'We never saw them again,'* Gloria said. "We can't understand how it happened.' They never even came up again. We couldn't help them. None of us new the water dropped off so deep like that. "My brother jumped in to save my uncle and little brother and (hen my brother-in-law Jumped in to help. I went in to help. That was all." Gloria and two other rela tives who also went in were able to pull Rose and young Timothy to safety. The bodie; of the .victims were recoverec later by sheriff's'divers. Lt. David Mitchell of the Hillsborough County sheriff! office said the two drowning victims apparently couldn' swim .well enough to save themselves. · WANTED lomeowners in this area will e given the opportunity to lave their homes restyled and rebeautified with the all new wood grained UNITED STATES STEEL siding, finished with VYNASOL VINYL.
