Bryan, TX (KWKT) — Two local Bryan men were honored at Tuesday night's city council meeting for their heroic acts last month.
Felix Chester and Carlos Cardenas were both given the Civilian Service Citation award from the Bryan Police Department, as well as the Citizen Award from the Bryan Fire Department for risking their lives to help save a trapped A&M student.
On May 6, 2013 Nicolette Elvir was driving her SUV on SH 47 when a dump truck collided with her causing her car to flip and land upside down.
Chester and Cardenas saw the accident and stopped to help.
Together the two pulled Nicolette, who was trapped upside down in her vehicle, out of the burning car.
Minutes after she was pulled to safety, Nicolette's car was fully engulfed in flames.
