Dear Trent & Tyson (Daddy is a Hero),

This woman’s husband is a local paramedic. He jumped into a COLD, DARK LAKE and wound up saving a baby’s life. The overall story and why this car ended up in a lake is a ridiculous tale of tragedy and pain, but this man’s actions are a glimmer of light and hope and love, because he only jumped into that water to save another life, even though it was a risk to his own. I’m proud of this young man and happy for his family that it worked out okay. I know this EMT probably thought of his own kids while reflecting on his heroics today. Great job, my friend.

But, trained or not, this man’s humility, honesty, and insistence on giving his partner credit during the press conference today were truly inspiring. So, yes sir, he is a true hero in my book.
