Connecticut Man Honored For Saving Driver From Dramatic Car Fire
Edward Cyr pulled the driver from a car that had just exploded in Stafford, Connecticut.
Edward Cyr was out to dinner with his wife on Nov. 1 when he saw a car explode at an intersection near the town hall in Stafford, Connecticut. Cyr pulled his car over and rushed toward the burning vehicle, pulling the driver, Glennwood Little, to safety. The dramatic rescue was captured by the town hall's security camera.
"You saved Mr. Glennwood Little from burning inside his vehicle. Words can't describe this act," Stafford Fire Department Chief David Lucia wrote in a Facebook post.
Cyr was honored with a certificate of heroism by the town's board of selectman, and Little got to thank Cyr in person as well.
"During these times of negativity throughout the country, this is such a heartwarming story of a person risking his own life to rescue another human being," the town's first selectman, Mary Mitta, told InsideEdition.com.
