Medal of Bravery

Two local Windsor men will receive the Medal of Bravery by the Governor General of Canada, David Johnston, in a ceremony to be held in Ottawa on Friday.

Micheal Collicutte from Windsor along with Andrew Zaranek from Mississauga will each receive one for their rescue a man from a burning vehicle near Ayr on May 24th, 2012.

The victim had become incapacitated, which caused him to crash his vehicle into a transport truck, where it caught on fire. Both managed to pull the victim out seconds before the vehicle became completely engulfed.

Brian McCormick will receive one for rescuing his neighbour from a burning house in on December 10th, 2012.

The distraught man had set fire to his house, which quickly filled with dark, toxic smoke, and McCormick ran inside and managed to drag his reluctant neighbour to safety.

In total 40 Medals of Bravery will be presented to Canadians.
