Hero honored by Albany Water, Gas, and Light

October 1, 2003

Albany -- Albany Water, Gas, and Light honored one of it's employees today, for helping save two children injured in a fatal car crash.

 Marvin Hall was one of the first people on the scene when a Georgia Power Truck crossed the median on the Liberty Bypass September 19th, and hit two cars head on. Louis Casey was killed in the crash, his two young sons injured. As the truck started to burn, Hall pulled the two boys out, and used his fire extinguisher to extinguish the flames.

Hall said "At that time you don't think about your own safety. You think about them. Getting them out and them being safe. You know they have a mother and a father just like anybody else. All I could think about was getting those two boys out of that truck."

Tuesday we showed you 3 year old Jacob and 2 year old Austin Casey arriving back home after ten days in an Atlanta hospital recovering from their injuries. Hall said hopes to visit them in the future.
