“In an instant, these people became everyday heroes” from CNN tells of various people who acted quickly and intelligently to save stranger’s lives, the people in need of help wouldn’t of survived unless these people acted in the brave manner they did. One of the examples in this article is about an off duty Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) who dove into a freezing pond to save a woman who drove her van into the pond. Many people think that the fire department is the only source of heroism, but sometimes it is just the average stranger that will save somebody in their “hour of need.” Most of these people do not wish to be called heroes because they feel that anybody would have done what they did. It is a good feeling thinking that anybody would risk their life to save another’s but it is not necessarily true. The people who do run into a fire when everybody else is running out are special people that should be recognized as heroes.
