Congressman Larry Bucshon
Congressional Record: 114th Congress
Extension of Remarks
26 May 2016
(Mr. BUCSHON asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
Mr. BUCSHON. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize a local act of courage.
Earlier this week, in my hometown of Newburgh, Indiana, a car wreck at a local gas station quickly turned into a life-or-death situation. In what was described as a scene from an action movie, Boonville native Scott Meador, who was a bystander to the incident, bravely pulled the driver to safety before the car was consumed by flames, saving the driver's life.
Scott Meador is a hero and an example for us all. Because of his selfless action, a family remains whole. That is what it means to be a Hoosier--to come to the aid of your fellow citizen when they are in need.
Mr. Speaker, it is important to highlight the positive things that happen daily in our country. Regardless of what may be going on around us, events like this remind us what is really important in life.
