Edwin Sischo Fights Off Hungry Sharks in Atlantic
- Staff Sergeant Edwin Sischo was fighting a shark last Friday,
with the Atlantic all around him, but he will be with his home
folks in a few days, upon the solid soil of the Town of
Hewett. He gave the word of his prospective return to the
William Sollbergers, and asked them to relay it to his parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Leon Sischo.
Edwin Sischo was one of the nine survivors of a
B-29 plane which crashed into the Atlantic last Friday. He
and a companion spent 18 hours on a rubber life raft built for one.
They fought off with a miniature oar a hungry shark which kept
circling their raft. They were finally picked up by a rescue
Edwin Sischo gave the word that he is in good condition, needing no medical attention.
