Michigan Eagle Scout Gets ‘Heroism Award’ for Saving Woman from Burning Car
An Eagle Scout in Michigan saved a woman from a burning car crash two years ago, and he recently received the Boy Scouts of America Heroism Award for his life-saving actions.
The woman, Jodie Matthews, pinned the award on Mychael Van Allsburg at a ceremony in June as he fought back tears.
“I heard the crash … and just started kind of running towards the noise,” Van Allsburg told Fox News, recounting the incident in 2018 in Fruitport, his first day on the job at Enterprise Door LLC.
He witnessed a driver get out of a rolled-over pickup truck, then he spotted a mangled, four-door car sitting in the middle of the street.
