Sometimes it’s nice to see us in the news for good. No 5 o’clock mug shot feature. No drama. No foolishness. Just a hometown welcome for a well deserving hero.
Meet Shontal Gaymond. A woman who ran into a burning apartment to save 1-year-old baby Nikia who was left alone. Shontal could have lost her life saving baby Nikia but instead she risked it. That is what we call bravery. *high five*
After several weeks in a Troy, NY hospital recovering from second and third degree burns, Shontal came home to a happy hero’s welcome from her neighbors and city officials!- not to mention a six month rent check from the city of Troy!
Hats off to Shontal and the many other unnamed heroes in our communities!
