Two Brothers Honored as Heroes After Making 911 Call

Cheektowaga, N.Y. (WKBW) Two Cheektowaga brothers have been honored as heroes by the U-Crest Fire Department.

Back in November, the boys found their mother, who was having an allergic reaction to medication, unresponsive at their home.

The boys, Matthew, age nine and Ryan, age seven, then phoned 911, alerting emergency responders to the emergency.

To honor the boys and to raise awareness about the importance of 911 education, the U-Crest Fire Department surprised the boys at home Sunday night.

They gave them certificates of appreciation and even a special ride on their company 4-wheeler with Santa.
