Seven brave heroes were honored tonight in Alton. They are the construction workers who raced to save a 24 year old man from a burning car along River Heritage Parkway last month.
They also got to meet for the first time the man they saved, Michael McKenna.
It was quite a scene as McKenna watched these men get their honors. McKenna is recovering from a fractured hip, the only injury he suffered from being in the accident and fire. Mckenna, who is in a wheelchair, says he should be cleared on Thursday by his doctor to walk again.
