Car in water, driver trapped, so here's what these teens did
U.S. Rep. John Shimkus, R-Collinsville, recognized two Carlyle High School seniors, Tyler Guthrie and Tucker Johnson, who rescued a man from a submerged car April 22.
“I ask that we all join in honoring these two good Samaritans and use their selfless act as a reminder that we are all here to help one another,” Shimkus said in a release. “I stand today to salute Tyler and Tucker for their contributions to this great society and to wish them the very best in all of their future endeavors.”
He made this statement on permanent Congressional Record.
The two Carlyle High School students saved a man’s life after his car flipped over in a pond April 22 when he turned off Old U.S. 50 into Fish Hatchery Park.
