marlob@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - When Stephanie Snyder saw a wheelchair-bound man careening down an incline toward the lake in City Park just before 4 p.m. Sunday, she automatically did what her lifesaving training told her to do. "I yelled to my sister to call 911 and watch my kids," Snyder said as she ran after the out-of-control wheelchair. The wheelchair crashed into a railing, hit some rocks and then catapulted Michael High into the water. A full-time Hood College student, Snyder, 26, said her American Red Cross training and the lifesaving skills she learned from Karen Meinelschmidt at the Richard A. Henson Family YMCA helped her Sunday.
