Mining boss becomes a hero, dies rescuing students from drowning

Australia-based Tungsten Mining’s (ASX:TGN) director Charlton William Kable, 62, died after trying to rescue six South Korean students from tidal currents on the NSW central coast.

According to The Australian, the junior mining company executive was swept away in the current, while attempting to rescue the students, aged between 8 and 19.

Locals later managed to pull Kable and the minors into a boat, but he was already unconscious upon leaving the water. Luckily, all of the students survived the accident.

Kable has worked consulting the mining industry since 1994, and also worked as a senior associate to Behre Dolbear Australia.
