Woodbury Good Samaritan to be honored in Roseville
The Woodbury man who likely saved the life of a fellow motorist in June will be honored for his actions.
The Roseville Fire Department will honor Robert Renning on July 23 at the city's fire station, according to a city of Roseville announcement.
Renning used his bare hands to wrench on the door frame of a burning SUV during a June 29 incident on Interstate 35W. Renning's efforts forced the SUV's window to break, allowing him to pull the motorist from the smoke-filled vehicle.
The SUV erupted in flames just seconds later; Roseville fire and EMS workers responded to the scene.
The July 23 recognition ceremony, to be held at 2 p.m., will also be attended by the freed motorist, Michael Johannes.
