Fifth grader Brandon Roth from Mariposa Elementary School received the St. Lucie County Fire Department Citizen Hero Award for his courageous actions during a life-threatening situation on June 25th, 2018.
On this day, ten-year-old Roth was riding his skateboard when he discovered a neighbor in distress lying in her doorway. He ran to her aid and flagged down a passing car to call 911. He continued to wait with her until the rescue trucks and firefighters arrived.
His quick thinking and immediate action averted a potentially tragic outcome.
