❝ A man who was panhandling before the fatal crash and fire in Lakewood Thursday is being recognized as a hero for rescuing people from the wreckage.

❝ Darin Barton was holding a sign asking drivers for help at the Denver West exit of Interstate 70 when he heard the crash…

“As soon as it rolled over, it just caught on fire. And I just dropped my sign, took off running,” Barton said.

❝ As Barton ran down the embankment toward the freeway, people escaping the flames were heading the opposite direction.

❝ …I headed under the bridge, grabbed three or four people out of a couple cars,” Barton said.

He said he was in good company; there were other good Samaritans working to rescue people.

“I didn’t do this all myself. There were other people in traffic that helped,” Barton said.

A brave act, an act of good will deserves recognition regardless of circumstances. RTFA. There’s a link there to help this man out.
