Priest saved Hitler from drowning? A four-year-old boy saved by a priest from drowning in the icy waters of the River Inn in Germany in 1894 could have been Adolf Hitler, say historians.

According to a newspaper report, which has surfaced in a German archive, the child was plucked from the river in Passau in January 1894. It quoted Max Tremmel, a priest who become one of Europe''s most famous organists, that his predecessor Johann Kuehberger had rescued "the terrified Hitler".

In fact, Father Tremmel told before his death in 1980 how Father Kuehberger, around the same age as Hitler, had seen the other boy struggling in the river and dived in to rescue him.

The story was never verified by the Nazi dictator during his lifetime. Go here to read more about this fascinating story.
