Citizen of the Week

Thursday, July 1, 2010

Even those who save lives for a living need someone to watch out for them. That is exactly what nine-year-old Garrett Summers did on June 22 when he saw an unoccupied vehicle in the Hart's parking lot careening for his dad, Eureka Springs Paramedic Billy Summers.

Garrett's quick thinking and getting his dad's attention prevented what could have been a serious accident. Garrett noticed the pickup rolling toward his dad and yelled. Billy moved just in time for the pickup to knock him forward, with the majority of the damage being done to Billy's pickup.

Although Garrett was shaken by the incident, he rushed to the aid of his dad to make sure he was okay. Garrett's actions were nothing short of heroic!

  • Yay, Garrett...what a guy to save the man who sang to me all the way from Mundell Road to the Eureka Springs Hospital so I wouldn't go into a coma. Father like son indeed!
