Red Cross Honors Heroes In Manchester

Mar 6, 2014

A woman who saved a fisherman from drowning is among those being honored this year as heroes by the Red Cross in New Hampshire.

A "Heroes Breakfast" being held Thursday in Manchester is part of a nationwide effort to honor outstanding individuals or groups in the state who performed acts of courage or gave their time in order to benefit others.

Kellie Barr-Foster of Barrington was rock climbing when she heard a man yell for help from Stonehouse Pond in October. She swam to him and pulled him to shore.

Others being honored Thursday are Christopher Bridge of Portsmouth; Robin Comstock of Nottingham; the Waterville Valley Academy and Resort staff; and Detachment 2, Fox Company, 169th AVN of the New Hampshire National Guard.
