Red Cross Heroes Honored Today


They pull people out of burning buildings; deliver babies in restrooms at work, and put their own lives at risk to head off a traffic accident. They are local heroes that are being honored by the American Red Cross today at its 7th Annual Heroes Breakfast. Red Cross spokesman Tom Farley talks about the Bend man who rescued a woman from a burning home. "A local gentleman who was driving home with his kids- noticed that there was a house on fire- so he stopped, called 9-1-1, found someone in bed asleep - woke the owner and got the woman out safely and the house was totally engulfed shortly after that." Fred Boos wins the health and safety hero award for that act. The annual Heroes Breakfast is the major fundraiser for the local Red Cross Chapter; it's at 7:30 am at the Riverhouse in Bend.
