Four Langley men receive bravery awards

Four Langley men are receiving bravery awards Tuesday for saving a 75-year-old woman from her burning home last March.

B.C. Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon will present the 2014 Royal Canadian Humane Association, Canada Bravery Awards at the BC RCMP headquarters in Surrey.

She is presenting awards to 37 of B.C.’s most deserving people.  They showed profound courage by placing their own lives at risk to help others in risky situations.

For his quick response and actions in saving a woman from a burning house, the Bronze Medal for Bravery goes to Nicholas Archibald.  For their efforts in the rescue the Honorary Testimonial Certificate goes to to Lucas Anderlini, Daniel Braaten and Steven Wood.

On March 28, 2013, the four young men saw the neighbouring house on fire and didn’t hesitate to act. They looked for ways to get inside the house, which was full of black smoke and flames.

Archibald managed to kick the door down and tried to find the woman. Fire was all around her.  She found her way to the men’s voices and to safety. The home was completely destroyed.
