Wuxi China Expatdom Navy Admiral Lloyd Bridges saves girl from drowning in Taihu Lake


The Admiral of the WCERN Aircraft Carrier Fred Astaire personally saved a girl from drowning at Taihu Lake.

Thursday afternoon, Admiral Bridges had the aircraft carrier on a test run in Taihu Lake, when he happened to espy a flipped fishing boat with a screaming and floundering girl nearby. Bridges quickly changed out of his Admiral Uniform into his scuba diving gear, dived into Lake Taihu, fought off three sharks and two squid to save the girl personally.

When offered money and eternal gratitude by the girl, Admiral Bridges said it was not necessary and that it was all in a day’s work for the Wuxi China Expatdom Royal Navy.

Wuxi China Expatdom Prime Minister Mango, when informed of the heroics, personally flew and landed an F15 Jet on the deck of the Fred Astaire and awarded the Wuxi China Expatdom medal of Supreme Honor to the Admiral.

Fred Minkleman, of Gambay’s Pub in the 1912 Bar District, offered Bridges a fifty percent discount on all menu items, except weekends.
