Broken Arrow men honored

Two men pulled an unconscious driver out of his burning truck last Saturday in Broken Arrow. It happened at the intersection of 91st and Garnett.

The truck sheared off a pole and burst into flames. Two drivers on the scene reached in and pulled out the driver, who was unconscious, but unhurt.

Jim Butler Jr: "I don't think I did anything other than what anybody should have done. If I was the one in the truck, I would want someone to reach over and open the door and drag me out, so that's what I did for somebody else."

The Broken Arrow Police Department honored the Butler and Danny Forsyth for their rescue during a ceremony Thursday.

The man they pulled out was jailed for drunk driving. He came out of the crash with just a scratch on his chin.
