CLEVELAND -- City Councilman Joe Cimperman says a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame employee will be honored at Cleveland City Council Monday night for saving a woman's life both times she tried to drown herself in Lake Erie.
During the afternoon of Dec. 24, a woman was spotted removing her shoes and jumping into the waters of the North Coast Harbor between the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the Great Lakes Science Center.
Andrew Sheehan, an employee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, saw the incident and quickly reacted to help pull the woman from the chilly waters before rescue crews arrived on the scene.
On Feb. 18, the same woman again was found making her way across the ice of the harbor. Bystanders threw a life preserver to her, but the ice broke beneath her feet and she fell into the water.
Again Sheehan was nearby when the incident occurred and jumped into the water to rescue the woman.
This time, Ian Roberts, an employee of the Great Lakes Science Center, was also on the scene and helped pull Andrews, who was beginning to suffer from hypothermia, from the waters.
