Dan's Sweetheart forces him to become a hero by pushing him into the park lake, into which a child has fallen. The water is shallow and Dan manages to drag the little one to the shore. For this deed he is rewarded by being made a copper. A brave cop he is, too, when it comes to chasing little boys. One day he goes to the lake shore and indulges in a plunge. The boys find his uniform, and stealing it away place the coat on the wharf. This leads to the impression that he gave his life to save another's, and while they laud his apparent bravery, he is hiding in the bushes, clothed only in a bathing suit.
