High School Heroes Rescue Man From Submerged Car

Congressman John Shimkus
Congressional Record: 115th Congress

HON. JOHN SHIMKUS of Illinois in the House of Representatives
Wednesday, May 3, 2017


  Mr. SHIMKUS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to acknowledge two brave and 
honorable Carlyle High School seniors from my district, Tyler Guthrie 
and Tucker Johnson. The two students showed compassion and great 
character when they saved a man's life after his car flipped over into 
water on Saturday, April 22, 2017.
  The victim was pulling off of Old US 50 into the Hatchery Park, 
trying to adjust his Bluetooth set when he received a phone call. 
Suddenly the man lost control of his Lexus, which flipped over onto its 
roof in the water. Luckily, driving behind the gentleman's car were 
Tyler and Tucker, and they immediately sprang into action.
  The two young men could hear the man's cries for help as they 
inspected the scene. Johnson quickly called 911, while Guthrie smashed 
in the rear window with a rock he had picked up. Johnson then assisted 
the man out of his overturned sinking car shortly before an ambulance 
arrived on the scene.
  I ask that we all join in honoring these two good Samaritans and use 
their selfless act as a reminder that we are all here to help one 
another.
  I stand today to salute Tyler Guthrie and Tucker Johnson for their 
contributions to this great society and to wish them the very best in 
all of their future endeavors.
