Palm Beach sheriff's deputy honored by Gov. Rick Scott for heroism
The Sun-Sentinel
Palm Beach County sheriff's Deputy Brian Fidler says he was doing what he hopes anyone else would when he broke a window and climbed into a burning house, grabbing the three children inside and carrying them to safety. "I just happened to be the first one on the scene," said the 29-year-old, of Royal Palm Beach. "I know that if anyone else had arrived before me, they would have been handing the kids out to me." But his actions earned him a Medal of Heroism from Gov. Rick Scott, who said Fidler "went above and beyond the call of duty." … The award, which recognizes Florida public safety officers who risk their lives to save others, came seven months after the fire. "I'm very appreciative that somebody would risk their life to keep a family together," Scott said.
