He was able to keep the three children afloat long enough for another adult to assist them to shore. Patrolman Notaro went below the surface before the adult returned to rescue him.
Patrolman Notaro was a U.S. Army veteran of the Korean War and had served with the Pittsburgh Police Department for 12 years. He was survived by his wife and four children.
