Montgomery to honor citizen rescuers

Dan Morse

Montgomery County officials on Tuesday will recognize a group of "Everyday Heroes," including a FedEx driver who came to the rescue of unconscious passengers inside an idling vehicle, county officials said.

The ceremony will take place at 2 p.m. in the county's executive office building in downtown Rockville.

Officials said they hope to bring rescuers together with those they helped, in some cases for the first time.

Others to be honored include a security guard who alerted occupants inside an apartment building of a fire on the top floor, lifeguards who arrived early for work and found a 3-year-old boy unresponsive in a pool, and co-workers at a construction site who helped a colleague after he collapsed, according to county officials.
