CLARIFICATION: The two women were not actually reunited ON the 'Today Show.' I had done an interview with Mrs Thomas several days before April 15th,1972 and realized, when I saw the Today Show there was a possibility their stories were related. I called NBC which did get the women together in a private telephone call. That's when they learned Mrs Mackenzie was the woman who had 'rescued' Mrs Thomas' infant son. Ironically the two never did meet in person although Mrs Thomas' daughter tells me they did keep in touch with each other via letter. I was the News Director of WILK Radio in Wilkes-Barre at the time and recently retired after 50 years in broadcasting radio and television. David DeCosmo, WYOU TV (ret)
