In our society we often think of the star quarterback or the baseball home run hitter as heroes. Recently on the coast lives have been saved by the action of real heroes. Individuals whom have put their lives on the line to save other lives.
In Gulfport firefighter Tot Burkhalter jumped into frigid waters at the state port to save an employee who had fallen off a pier. Burkhalter was able to keep the person afloat until a Coast Guard boat was able to pull the man to safety.
Burkhalter was honored recently by the Coast Guard and the citation said, "In those types of conditions, in the water it takes courage, it takes ingenuity, it takes heroic action at the right time to make a difference."
Burkhalter said the credit also belongs to the Coast Guard. Burkhalter said that when the Coast Guard showed up I knew we were going to save this man's life.
Then last week in Biloxi two small children were pulled from a burning structure by Biloxi Firemen. When firefighters Andy Cosper, Chris Denton and Steve Dunaway pulled the youngsters from the smoke filled building they were not breathing. By applying CPR the girls started breathing.
The three firemen credit the whole department saying everybody did their job the way they were trained to do and executed perfectly.
Two sets of heroes right here in South Mississippi putting their lives on the line to save others.
