ELYRIA — Fourteen heroes from all over the county will be recognized today at a breakfast hosted by the American Red Cross of Lorain County.
Honorees include people from all walks of life including a mail carrier, two policemen, a school counselor, a high school student, a tow truck driver, and a couple young children. They are:• Warren Canon Jr., a tow truck driver, and Marcus and Maria Rouston called 911 on a freezing night in January when they spotted smoke coming from a Lorain home with a handicapped ramp outside. They all went inside the house and pulled the 88-year-old man inside to safety as the fire destroyed the home. The man inside had been sleeping and was unaware of the fire.
