Laurel man nominated for Carnegie Medal

Recognized for saving drowning couple

(Continued)

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

“It’s still an honor, even if I don’t win it,” he said. “But I just went out to help some people who were drowning. I really don’t know if I could do it again, but I probably would try. I was raised that we need to help each other all we can. There’s a lot of negative things out there now. It only takes one kind act a day to change that.

“If I see somebody who needs help, I try to help them,” he added. “It’s what I would want someone to do for me or for some of my family.”
