3 Fondy hometown heroes recognized for saving woman’s life

July 11, 2017 – Fond du Lac County, WI – Three Fond du Lac County highway workers are being praised for stopping to help during a two-vehicle accident on Highway 45 last Friday afternoon.

Highway Commissioner Tom Janke says Jim Guell, Steve Reilly and Dan Hornburg were on their way to a construction project in New Fane when they stopped and used their extinguishers to put out a vehicle fire while Amber Wiedmeyer of Merrill was still trapped inside the car.

Janke says recognizing the trio’s good deeds at this week’s Highway Committee meeting is the least they could do.
