Pittsfield Recognizes Boys Who Tried to Help Swimmer

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff

Fire Chief Sammons explains what happened at Silver Lake on June 23. 
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Christopher Daniels just kind of shrugged Thursday morning when asked about how he and his brother, Skylar, had rushed to find help when they saw a swimmer in trouble at Silver Lake. 
 
But first-responders said the 16-year-old was loud and clear on June 23 when he called 911 to report the emergency.
 
"They're the ones that initiated the 911 call, and they gave clear direction," said Fire Chief Thomas Sammons. "Their quick actions, and the conviction that was in Christian's voice — we knew that he was dead serious."
 
Both brothers were recognized by Mayor Linda Tyer and Sammons at a brief ceremony at the Columbus Avenue fire station on Thursday morning.
