GENTRY Jeff Black of Gentry became a hero when he and his wife Liz were on a Princess Cruise aboard the ship Ruby earlier this month.
According to Shirley Broadston, while disembarking in Granada, Black noticed a man - 70 and almost blind - fall overboard from another ship which was also unloading passengers there. Black quickly shoved his camera to his wife, dove overboard and rescued the man, saving his life.
As a result, he was treated like royalty for the rest of his cruise.
“I am so proud to have him for a friend and neighbor,” Broadston said.
