St. George Island - 60-year old Luis Borja of Thomasville was swimming with his daughter at St. George Island Thursday. The two were apparently pulled under by the current.

Two men rushed into the water to help them, but Borja told them to "save his daughter". The men pulled her to safety then went back in to get Borja.

He was almost to shore when he slumped over. The men performed CPR but could not revive him. Borja was an LPN at Glenn-Mor nursing home.
