West Boca boater swims all night for his life, prays for lost friends

Fighting for his life against the tide proved impossible, so Frank Yanac turned toward a beacon of light on shore and swam. His two friends were swimming behind him after a boating accident Saturday night in the Gulf of Mexico, but their voices grew dim as Yanac, 66, a former lifeguard, made it through patches of cold and warm water in the throes of exhaustion and onto the sand. ------------------------------- Dwayne
