On the night of Jan. 5, a car crashed and burst into flames outside of Boston Market. Prospect senior Ryan Brock was working at Boston Market at the time and saw the crash outside. He grabbed his coworker, Prospect junior Ben Pennino, and the two immediately ran outside to see who needed their help. 

 

Without hesitation, Pennino opened the driver’s side door of the car engulfed in black smoke and the driver fell out. With the eventual help of two other men, Pennino dragged the man away from the burning car and to safety. 

 

Pennino was later told by first responders that the man, fading in and out of consciousness according to Pennino, would have died had he not dragged him to safety.
