Heroic Rome High School Football Players Honored as First Responders
ROME, GEORGIA - An accident news story published on wsbtv.com reports that a group of Rome High School football players is being recognized as heroes after they rushed in to save a woman who was trapped inside her wrecked vehicle.*
Last Monday, the CEO of Atrium Health Floyd, Kurt Stuenkel, recognized the Rome High School students for their brave act. The students, Treyvon Adams, Cesar Parker, Tyson Brown, Antwiion Carey, and Alto Moore were named honorary emergency first responders. The traffic accident occurred on August 13 and the students stopped to help the 50-year-woman out of her car before it burst into flames.
The Rome High School students also shared their stories on Good Morning America.
One witness, Luis Goya, a teacher at Rome High School, heard a loud crash at an intersection in front of the high school, and he saw the two-vehicle crash. He also saw the football players run to the woman's rescue. The football players literally used their strength to pry the wrecked car door open. The heroes successfully opened the car door and helped her escape. The teacher stated that the Rome High School football players went above and beyond to help this accident victim without hesitation.
The Rome City School District thanked the brave young men who were a positive example to the community.
The fire-rescue department invited its first responders to help present this award to the students.
