CHARLESTON, S.C. — Scotty Tugya saw the look of horror on the drowning man's face and knew he had to do something.

Tugya was one of four Charleston police officers who stood in a downpour on the bank of a West Ashley pond Sunday afternoon, calling to the unknown man as he paddled helplessly at the water until disappearing beneath the surface.
