Freeman a hero in our eyes

Last weekend a group of 37 children were at a pool party. Those who couldn’t swim had life vests on.

One young man took his vest off and as he struggled to get across the pool, a parent noticed he was having problems making it and it looked like he might drown.

Before anyone could react, Mr. Jeremy Freeman, without hestitation, jumped in the pool, shoes on, cell phone clipped to his belt, fully dressed, to pull the struggling child to safety.

The child may not have been in real danger, but Mr. Freeman, who used to be a lifeguard, didn’t second guess, just reacted!

The community wants to say thank you, Mr. Jeremy Freeman, for your heroic act, God Bless you.
