Seven heroes honored for making a life saving difference

FLINT (WJRT) - (06/28/16) - The Hundred Club of Genesee, Shiawassee and Lapeer County honored seven heroes Tuesday evening, who made a life saving difference in our community.

They each have their own stories.

One dove into the icy Shiawassee River to save a woman. Another went into a burning home three times to make sure all three people got out of the flames.

Two of them would pull a family from a smashed and smoking car, while it was upside down. And three others would be shot at by people who they were trying to protect.

The 2016 Hundred Club Heroes may work for different departments, but each of them risked their own lives to save others.

The Hundred Club also gave out more than $50,000 worth of safety grants to purchase everything from safety cones to bullet proof vests.

Our own Angie Hendershot served as the program emcee.
