By Meghan Rubado and Mike McAndrew Staff writers Teenage lifeguards Sunday pulled two unconscious swim- mers, a mother and her autistic son, from the pool at the Cov- ered Bridge Apartments in Liv- erpool and revived both using cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Diana Mann, 57, and Jason Benedict, 31, who live at Cov- ered Bridge, were treated at St. Joseph Hospital Health Center and released late Sunday night. Just before 2 p.m., Mann held her arms around Benedict, who cannot swim on his own, and floated with him in about 7 feet of water, the lifeguards said. The mother and son were popping their heads underwater and com- ing back up. Benedict was blow- ing bubbles in the water. Then, "all of a sudden, they were both doing the dead man's said lifeguard Carissa Bertrand as she hunched over with her face pointed down to her chest to demonstrate the po- sition. Diana Mann explained that she had slipped on the bottom of the pool while she was holding her son on the surface, and they floated into deeper water. "I went under the rope on purpose because it wasn't really deep there. Just three foot. I was trying to hold my son so he could swim. Then I slipped in the bottom of the pool. And I couldn't use my hands because I was trying to hold him. I kicked my feet as hard as 1 could." she said after leaving the hospital just before midnight. Then she lost consciousness. Bertrand and fellow lifeguard Shawna Laemlein dove into the water. Bertrand pulled up Bene- dict, and Laemlein grabbed Mann. Neither was breathing.

She says, "Freedom is this: If you lose it, then you know what freedom is." Kornreich, who is holding a flag given to her by the Manlius Police Department, listens to East Side Manor activities director Lynne Morse. Five Central New York residents tel! what freedom means to them The Fourth of July celebrates the signing in 1776 of the Declaration of Independence by 56 representatives of the 13 original colonies: New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. In its lines, men like Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock and Benjamin Franklin made their case against Great Britain's King George III, and his "tyranny over these States." They chose freedom over oppression; in the closing line they wrote: we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor." Today, The Post-Standard asks five people in our community to describe what freedom means to them: Gisela Kornreich, who turned 104 on June 18. has a keen understanding of freedom. She did six years of slave labor in Russian concentration camps. In 1938, Kornreich, her husband. Otto, and their son, Philipp, fled Hitler and left Vienna, Austria, for Latvia. Imprisoned by Russians who took over Latvia in 1941, they spent a year in a Siberian concentration camp and five more in Kazakstan. At one point, her husband was assigned to work in quarries. She came to America in April 1950 and settled in Pittsburgh where she lived until 1978 when she moved to Syracuse. "The anti-freedom killed us, tortured us, murdered us. My husband, he was forced to work, under the pain of hunger, and impossible heat, to bear the sleepless nights because of biting bugs. My husband died on the ground, on the floor, in a pile of straw. He was (almost) 42 years old. The war came to an end in 1945. Summer. We were working in the fields. They said Roosevelt died and the war was coming to an end. Nobody believed it.

Further, the New York Cayu- gas were to pocket up to 150 million over 10 years and they could have acquired and exer- cised sovereignty on a maximum acres in Cayuga and Sen- eca counties, under the agree- ment.
