On a highway, a hero emerged to save another's life
Emergencies can happen at any time, anywhere: in the supermarket parking lot, at a family wedding, on a hot day at the community pool or even at the office or inside your very own home. What they often have in common is a group of people wondering who should act and trying to remember what to do. That is, until a hero emerges.
On April 28, Matthew Hunt was that hero.
This week, the American Red Cross honored Hunt, a Portsmouth Naval Shipyard police office, for saving the life of an accident victim with his CPR skills.
In a virtual ceremony, Hunt received the Red Cross Lifesaving Award – the highest award the Red Cross gives to individuals or groups of individuals who sustain or save a life using skills learned in a Red Cross Training Services course.
