ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — A Newfoundland cab driver who rescued four young people from a burning vehicle was formally recognized for his heroism last week.
Mike Stapleton was awarded a medal for bravery from the Royal Canadian Humane Association at St. John’s City Hall on Oct. 7.
Stapleton recalled the quiet early morning in May, at approximately 2:15 a.m., when he came across the damaged vehicle on a St. John’s street.
“It was a weird, moon-ish night. There wasn’t a sound,” he said in a phone interview. “It’s like I was meant to be there.”
