POULSBO, Wash. (Metro) -- Two 12-year-old girls owe their lives to a retired Navy diver who helped rescue them from Hood Canal Saturday. KING 5 News reports Jerry Schumacher lives near the canal where the tide came in and swept the girls into the canal as they walked on the beach. A neighbor heard them screaming and dialed 911, while Schumacher put on his dry suit, grabbed two life vests and swam out to them. Arriving firefighters borrowed a neighbor's boat and plucked all three from the water. Copyright © 2012 Metro Networks Inc.
