TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey will present Andrea L. Harris of Tuscaloosa with the Carnegie Medal for heroism Wednesday.
Harris is being rewarded for his heroism in 2018 when he entered a burning, overturned car to rescue a 7-month-old baby.
She was able to flag down Harris who then broke through the door window with his hand and grabbed the child out as flames were building inside the vehicle.
The Pittsburgh-based Carnegie Hero Fund will make Harris its 10,098th hero which was created by Andrew Carnegie in 1904.
