While fishing Canadaway Creek at Laona Falls recently, Tom Buck of Cassadaga made a bigger catch than he could ever expect. A young boy suddenly appeared in the water and tumbled over the falls, head over heels, before going under twice. Mr. Buck started toward the boy and was aided by a current which brought the youngster closer to the bank. They grabbed for each other and the boy caught hold. Once out of the water, the boy continued up the embankment until he was out of sight. He was not seen again and the identity of the boy remains unknown.
